Maximum Intervention Gamay 2020
Bright ruby in the glass with intense aromas of cranberries, red currants and forest moss. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, ripe and juicy with flavours of red cherries and red currants with floral notes, a touch of green peppercorn and a chalky mouthfeel. The finish is refreshing and savoury, leaving you wanting another sip!Download Notes

Our first red wine in the Maximum Intervention family, sourced from our neighbour Lado Viscek’s vineyard, a 50/50 blend of whole clusters and crushed Gamay. It was fermented in a small stainless steel tank. Pushdowns and pumpovers were done without aeration to prevent oxidation. The wine was kept in contact with the skins for four weeks before pressing. After another 6 months in stainless steel it was bottled with only a small amount of SO2 added at bottling in June 2020.
