Gamay Blanc de Noir 2019 (Magnum)

Tasting Notes

Fine bubbles in the glass. Aromas of almonds, biscuits, raspberries and white currants with notes of minerality. On the palate, the mousse is fine with bracing acidity and flavours of lemon and raspberries. The finish is long, dry and refreshing with lingering flavours of tart, red raspberries.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Our second traditional method sparkling wine made entirely from Gamay, the fruit was hand-harvested in the second week of September 2019 from the first few rows of our Whitty Vineyard in Creek Shores. The grapes were transferred gently into the press and the free-run juice was captured separately to preserve the elegant profile. Primary fermentation was kept cool and in 100% stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation was suppressed to keep the fresh fruit character in the wine. The secondary fermentation took place in bottle and the wine was aged sur lattes for a minimum of 12 months. After the lees was removed, winemaker Jean-Pierre Colas felt the wine was in perfect balance so decided to not add any sugar to the dosage resulting in a classically dry sparkling wine in the zero dosage style.
