2022 GAMAY Farmstead (LCBO Vintages Essential)

Silver Medal, 2023 National Wine Awards, WineAlign.com

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh, perky acidity drives the fragrance and flavour of this gregarious gamay. Fruity fragrances reveal cherry, blueberry filling, red licorice and black pepper. The tongue is treated to cherry gelée, strawberry shortcake and raspberry, trailing to a gentle, herbal finish.

Gamay clusters were sourced from four vineyards, 50% from Wismer Foxcroft, 30% from Huebel Estate, 8% from Genova and 2% from Malivoire Estate.

After primary and malolactic fermentation, 70% of the wine rested in neutral (three or more fills) barrels, while the remainder aged in stainless steel. After six months, the
finished product was blended for bottling in May 2023.

At the time of bottling, alcohol was measured at 12%, residual sugar at  1.0 grams per litre; titratable acidity at 8.0 grams per litre and pH at 3.4.

Dry: 1.0 g/L residual sugar

Vegan friendly.
