Oak Bay Vineyard Gamay Noir

Oak Bay Vineyard Gamay Noir 2014

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLightly smoky notes open this lighter-bodied, darker-fruited gamay noir, one that flows with silky dark cherries, ripe dark plum, forest berries and cracked pepper. A slight tug of tannins and snap of acidity break the perfumed cassis and dusty cinnamon on the finish. Quite charming, and at 12.1 percent, quaffable too. Planted in 1964, 1990, 1999 at 350-440m on clay, sand and gravels, this was fermented in a blend of stainless, French and American oak. #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 28 April 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.30 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: St. Hubertus & Oak Bay Estate WineryDistributors: Harvest Select Wines
