Orofino Vineyards Gamay 2016

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom two vineyards in Cawston, this was planted in 1999 and 2010 on Stemwinder soils (angular granite shale). Look for dusky savoury spicy cherry, downy raspberry, blackcurrant expressed along a crunchy, salty, stony bed. Acidity is fine and nimble, humming along the lingering finish. A more structured, severe shade of friendly gamay that needs some grilled sausages to really sing. #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 19 July 2017Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Orofino VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
