JoieFarm Gamay 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAn extreme version of this variety that highlights freshness and intense savoury notes. The nose is a cherry, herbal raspberry affair with a strong rooty earthy undercurrent. The structure is firm with super bright acidity and a stony, savoury and salty finish. The fruit is all Naramata - from the clay banks of Deep Roots Vineyard. The wine is aged ten months in a mix of French barriques, puncheons and cask and left for another year in bottle. A bit geeky and extreme and must be served with food. The 12.6 percent alcohol emphasizes the chiselled, tight style here.Tasted: 20 October 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.00 BCLS AB 35.00 private wine shops Producer: JoieFarmGrape: Gamay NoirCSPC: 675900UPC: 00692739000187
