Oak Bay Vineyard Gamay Noir 2015

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe vineyard is in year two of its final transition to certified organic. This is a very friendly style of gamay, soft in tannins and rich in lightly smoky notes, black cherry fruit aromas and flavours. The texture is very silky and inviting glass after glass before it finishes up with the perfect amount of acidity mixed between a dusty, peppery finish. A warm year has given this wine an extra layer of flesh that it wears well. Planted in 1964, 1990, 1999 at 350-440m on clay, sand and gravels, it is fermented in stainless steel tanks and French and American oak.Tasted: 18 April 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 18.50 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: St. Hubertus & Oak Bay Estate WineryDistributors: Harvest Select Wines
