Our newest addition to our Single Vineyard Series. This is a medium-bodied, fruit forward wine. Raspberry and cedar notes highlight the aroma, while the palate delivers a fine, silky texture. Gamay is the principle grape of the Beaujolais region—known for producing early release fun fruity wine. Made here in a more serious style, with barrel aging for 9 months to round out and refine the mid-palate structure.
Gjoa’s vineyard, situated just below our winery, was established 27 years ago. These mature vines produce fruit which stands out with deep plum and mocha aromas and a savoury note to the palate, lending sophistication to the finish. So fun to taste and compare with our Dickinson Vineyard Merlot!
Vineyard blocks were chosen for tropical characters to complement the spicy, floral oak flavours of Tokay wood. Given extended time in barrel sur lies with batonnage (stirring) to create a creamy midpalate.
