Terrassen Gamay Finger Lakes 2016

Who says solid, mouthwatering Gamay only comes from Beaujolais? This New York based porch pounder comes from the West Side of Cayuga Lake, from vines of 20 years in age, rooted in limestone-shale soils. Fruit is cold soaked and carbonically macerated, fermented with Burgundian yeast, and aged for eight months in old oak. Crunchy red fruit, refreshing acidity, and a perfect ‘red’ aperitif. Only three barrels produced!
Not available in New York. Check stock in San Francisco


Wine Type






The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

This series of slender lakes near New York's Canadian border moderate what would otherwise be a hostile wine climate – creating some of the world’s best Rieslings from glacial moraine soils.
