Division Villages Les Petits Fers Gamay Noir 2020

2015 vintage note

The 2015 result of our “Les Petits Fers” Gamay Noir is definitely a step up in complexity from our 2014, with the new sites clearly adding to makeup of the wine. This is first time we surprised ourselves, as the wine shows the Beuajolais-Villages side of Gamay with freeze dried strawberries, black pepper, the distinct carbonic flavor and rose petals on nose. The palate is mineral rich and intense in strawberries, and juicy fruit! The wine is medium bodied and very smooth (especially for the vintage), and has a deep color for Gamay. We think it’s drinking very well in it’s early youth and are excited to see how it ages!

The Willamette Valley is known as typically one of the coolest and wettest major wine growing regions in the U.S, what is less known is that 100 miles to the south in the northern coastal slopes south of Eugene, there is another great cool climate growing area named after the areas primary river, the Umpqua AVA. The Gamay grape, which hails from the Beaujolais region also flourishes in the Loire Valley, but is just beginning to grow in popularity in the U.S. 2015 was much like 2014, dry and very warm! We added two Gamay in 2015, Redford-Wetle and Bjornson Vineyard, as well as returning sites, Methven Family Vineyards all in the Eola-Amity Hills. Rebecca’s Vineyard, planted in 1987, returns as well from the Umqua AVA, which has been a quiet beacon of the Gamay grapes’ capabilities outside of the Willamette Valley. - the winery
