2011 Gamay

We are excited to introduce our first vintage of Gamay. It's the perfect summer red!

Medium red/purple in colour with bright fruit aromas of fresh cherries and raspberries, complemented by savory notes. Light-medium bodied with a soft mid-palate and good fruit flavours on the finish. Best served slightly chilled!

Hand-harvested, crushed and destemmed with a short cold soak prior to start of fermentation. Macerated with the skins for nearly two weeks and gently pressed into (mostly) older French oak barrels, where the wine aged for six months. The barrels were then emptied and integrated together before filtration and bottling.
