Having studied the winemaking of Beaujolais, Burgundy, the Loire, and the Northern Rhône, Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe took those techniques to the West Coast. At Division Winemaking in Portland, Oregon, they have been crafting French-inspired wines since 2010. In this case, they showcase not only the iconic grape of Beaujolais, gamay noir, but also the carbonic maceration process that contributes to the distinctive flavor profile of Beaujolais wines. This Oregon gamay combines harvests from vineyards on the western slopes of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA in the Willamette Valley and from Rebecca’s Vineyard in the Umpqua AVA to the south. Both areas draw ocean air into mountain valleys in the evening, providing a day-to-night temperature differential optimal for retaining gamay’s natural acidity. If you’ve been on the hunt for a sophisticated, French-styled gamay from Oregon, look no further! This cuvée brings a slightly smoky and stemmy depth to fresh red berries with a smooth texture, leading to a savory finish. Sustainably grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
