2018 Gamay

Fruity with bright black raspberry notes, along with licorice and black pepper

$19.95

TASTING NOTES

Another delicious Gamay, reconfirming this grape variety is arguably the most gulpable red grape in Ontario (and beyond). The nose is fruity with bright black raspberry notes, along with licorice and black pepper. Excellent depth and complexity on the palate with flavours of black cherry, mushroom and leather with ample balancing acidity and a long finish with notes of spice. Will certainly reward those who cellar for the short-to-midterm but is drinking perfectly well on release. Serve lightly chilled so it feels cool in your mouth (13-15oC) and enjoy it with a range of flavourful every day favourites like pepperoni pizza, shepherd’s pie, pasta Bolognese or veggie stir fry.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Harvesting for each vineyard took place in late September and early October and the grapes were vinified separately. The grapes were sorted both in the vineyard and on sorting table to ensure only the most pristine fruit entered the tank. After crushing and de-stemming the grapes were moved to stainless steel fermenters where the primary fermentation took place over 3 weeks. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was completed in tank and the wines were kept separate until final blending and bottling in early June 2019
