Gamay loves the granite/siliceous soils of the vineyards in the hills to the north west of Lyon in eastern France. 2018 brought glorious sunshine and the grapes were hand picked deliberately early to maintain freshness. In the cellar, grapes are vinified using traditional carbonic maceration techniques (where fermentation is started by the weight of berries in the vat, crushing those below) followed by a short cuvasion to keep the up front, juicy fruit characters in this lighter style of wine.
Bouncy, crunchy Gamay, this no-fuss wine is an irresistible fruit bomb packed with amazing primary fruit aromas and delicious soft red berry flavours. Gorgeous Gamay at its best.
Try with charcuterie, grilled herby chicken kebabs, or sausages on the barbeque.
