Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.

Winemaker Notes
Old vines, planted in 1984 by our founder just to the south of the winery, and a long warm summer produced the lovely fruit for this Gamay Noir. An 11 cold soak to extract bright fruit flavours was followed by fermentation with 22 days total skin contact. Barrel aged for 9 months in French (31% new) & Hungarian oak, this wine is made in a Burgundian-style, resulting in a medium bodied, fruit forward wine.
