2017 Waited on the Thunder
Waited on the Thunder is 100% Gamay Noir from our inaugural batch of Night Moves Gamay.
Our winemaker Ryan was so captivated by this wine that he decided to hold back and “waited” for six barrels to age an additional two years before bottling. The secret – for the entire length of aging, the barrels were never opened. Hence… we waited on the thunder.
Waited on the Thunder follows our overarching winemaking program where-in the juice is not adjusted at harvest, it is fermented using non-selective wild yeast, bottled with minimal sulphur added, and without fining or filtration. Due to the extended aging on lees in un-opened barrels a very different expression of Gamay resulted than what we have previously released, but one that really intrigues us. We are very excited to share this special vintage with you.
Painfully limited supply of only 1300 bottles available.
