Therianthropy Wine (Creemore Hills, ON)

Not a carbonic nouveaux, this is fresh fruit (strawberry and cherry) with spice (pink peppercorn and cinnamon). Super crunchy, super fun. Harvested: 29th September 2023. Varietal: 60% Pinot Noir 40% Gamay. Vineyards: Pinot Noir Bock Vineyard, St David's Bench, Ontario, Canada. Minimal till and permanent cover crops with reliance as much as possible on biologicals and elementals. Gamay Bucknall Farms Vineyard, 20 Mile Bench, Ontario. Canada Dry and sustainably farmed with permanent cover crops. Soils: Bock Vineyard Tavistock red phase. Toledo loamy phase and Toledo phase: soils not common in the region Bucknall Farms Vineyard - Calcareous clay loam soil with varying degrees of silt, limestone gravel and boulders. Growing season: 2023 was a very mild and moist growing season. The main challenge, as a result, was battling mildew all summer long. A sudden dry spell was welcomed with open hands and hearts just before harvest and then remained for most of harvest, which turned around the season quite spectacularly. The result is perfectly ripe fruit flavours, with low alcohol and high acids. Yeast type: wild, ambient. Fermentation: Co-fermented in Apollo egg 40% whole-cluster. A five-day cold soak followed by a 21-day primary fermentation Gentle punch-downs and pump-overs were employed when needed to keep the cap healthy and to extract flavour and structure 100% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, taking one month to complete.
