Gamay 2015

Notify me when this product is available:

We work with Gamay because we feel that it naturally excels in the cool climate desert of south-central British Columbia. The superiority of the Burgundian varietals to our terroir is undeniable, but of equal importance is their compatibility with the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest. This Gamay is rich, dark, meaty and savoury, reminiscent of the great Cru Beaujolais of Morgon and Moulin-a-Vent. It is from a single vineyard site on the clay banks of the Naramata Bench. This wine is a great example of low-cropped Gamay grown on the right site. It demonstrates the true potential of Gamay in the Okanagan.

Varietal: 100% Gamay Noir

Awards: Double Gold Medal, 2017 Cascadia Wine Awards, Oregon

  • Deep Roots Vineyard, Naramata Bench

  • Aromas of intense black cherry and ripe blackberries are followed by a fleshy palate with a sanguineous earthiness. The palate is spicy and smoky to the finish with savoury sage and surprising fine tannin structure this vintage, finishing with plush juiciness. This wine pairs beautifully with grilled lamb, smoked salmon, charcuterie, and game.
