Gamay / Gamay Noir originates from Beaujolais France, the grape can also go under the alias Beaujolais. This variety is known for incredibly easy drinking red wines. Offering the lightest style of red wine it is full of strawberry, tuitti fruitti cherry and low tannin. Gamay can also have richer characteristics of plum, pepper, and earth. These wines are usually best consumed when young and served slightly chilled. A great variety for new red wine drinkers.
This is a pretty bold Gamay! Estate fruit these vines were planted in 2013 and the flavour profile does not hold back. It shows some really great red fruit notes mixed with hints of floral and that classic Gamay spice. I was very happy with this wine! A smaller lot of just three barrels were made, the wine aged in new and used American oak for 8 months and is unfiltered
