Everyone loves an underdog and Gamay, although a classic varietal, always seems to walk in the shadow of Pinot Noir.  However, Gamay Noir typically offers enhanced acidity and a more fruit forward palate than the average Pinot Noir.

We treat our Gamay with as much respect as our Pinot Noir.  The vines are meticulously maintained ensuring that we get a balanced crop abound with ripe fruit.  As Gamay Noir is a delicate style of wine, we allow it to sit on the skins for two weeks. This helps derive colour and complexity.  The wine is then barrel aged in both small and large French oak barrels to soften and mature the wine.

On the nose this wine is full of red plum, raspberry, blackberry and a hint of smoked meat.  The palate is refreshing, with dominate red berry notes.  With its natural acidity, Gamay Noir is a wine that resets the palate with each sip.

One of the best things about Gamay Noir is its versatility.  When slightly chilled the fruit steps forward even more, while the acidity drops further into the background.  This keeps the wine refreshing and is perfect for those that typically drink white wine.

Gamay Noir is a real treat when served alongside grilled meats, stuffed peppers or light gravies.  It is also fabulous paired with spicy chicken wings.
