I’m thinking about summer entertaining too and came upon this red wine that is made with the Gamay grape. The grape of Beaujolias of course and I really enjoyed it. Gamay and Beaujolais have sort of been off my radar so this was very much a welcome surprise.
This wine has great bright fruit of cherry, plum and hint of spice on the nose, it has vibrant acidity, and mouth filling flavours of more plum and cherry and a touch of toasted or baking spice, very satisfying, lingering finish.Quite the Gamay!
It is the Tawse Gamay Noir 2013, which sells for $18.95 at the winery Tawse Winery, located on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment.
This is the 3rd year Tawse Winery is making their Gamay. The grapes are sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards they are hand harvested and the wine is aged in French oak for about 8 months.Tawse Winery of course is certified biodynamic and I love that too.
This wine was released July 2015 here in our market in Vintages.
