2021 Lucy M Gamay Nuovo Gamay
The 2021 Lucy M Gamay Nuovo is one of the freshest reds yet from the legendary Adelaide Hills natural winemaker, Anton Van Klopper. The grapes come from Robert Surmann's 30 years old Gamay vines and are carbonically fermented for 5 days, after which they are aged in terra cotta eggs.
“Natural wine is simply wine made from grapes. But it is so much more, because ‘natural’ is not greed, capitalism, chemical, or control. It is a metamorphosis to allow the archetypal beverage to form. You must have a relationship with the vines that offer you their fruit, and it would be a sin to manipulate them with chemicals, so they must be farmed organically. To adulterate nature’s work by filtering, fining, or any addition, including small amounts of sulfur, is not natural.” – Anton Von Klopper - Winemaker Extraordinaire
