Winemaking:

Our Gamay Nouveau is made from 100% stainless steel fermented and NOT aged wine. These Gamay Noir grapes
were picked for flavour and balance. Gamay Nouveau style wines are required to have a
portion of the wine complete fermentation with carbonic maceration. Our 2020 Gamay
Nouveau is 70% whole cluster for carbonic maceration and 30% crushed and destemmed
fruit. These grapes were fermented on their skins for alcoholic fermentation in special,
small 1500 Litre closed topped stainless steel fermenting tank that allows for a CO2 rich
environment which is necessary for a carbonic maceration style of winemaking. Pump-overs
were carried out daily to keep the yeast happy and healthy and assist with colour and
extraction. After alcoholic fermentation was complete, we pressed the grapes off of their
skins and taste at the press before pumping into a stainless steel tanks where we allowed
for Malolactic fermentation to take place before racking and finally hand-bottling.

Appearance:

Bright fuchsia with a rose hue.

Aroma:

A fruit driven wine with aromatics that jump out of the glass; dark Amarena cherry,
brambleberry and hints of dried rose petals. Secondary notes of candy floss, bubble gum,
and strawberry-rhubarb pie round out the profile of this youth and fun wine.

Palate:

A light to medium-bodied and well balanced red showcasing jammy red fruits; ripe rainier cherry, strawberry and raspberry
are on the forefront of the palate. Flavours of black forest cake, light spice notes and
pomegranate follow. The mid-palate is fruit focused with a backbone of structured acidity
and delicately layered tannins with a lingering berry finish. This youthful and refreshing red is
a very balanced and easy drinking young red that is great slightly chilled, on its own or with
light snacks.
