Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Bright purple. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, black raspberry, dried rose and minerals, with a smoky overtone. Juicy, incisive red fruit flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and gain sweetness with air. Fine-grained and admirably balanced, finishing with noteworthy clarity and lingering spiciness.

Winemaker's Notes

This is a very serious Gamay! It's accessible, yet complex, with lots of red fruit (raspberries, redcurrants), graphite, savory licorice/toasted anise, cocoa, and some dried mint. Soft tannins (plush, not intrusive at all), and good acidity. Pairs great with grilled sausages, and barbecued chicken breast!

    Dette så ut som en fin vin å servere til BBQ fest på verandaen i fin vær i sommer. Lys rød i fargen, og smak av røde frukter og tørket mint. Flott syret. Passer fint sammen med grillete pølser og grillet kyllingbryst. Kos deg med en smak av sommer.
