Bella Wines Gamay Noir Pet-Nat Mariani Vineyard Clone 509 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIf the sparkling-only house didn't give away the geekness award, this is one of two gamay pét-nats from a single Naramata Bench vineyard, each made from different clone, processed and picked the same. Unlike the pale peach 787 clone, this is a gutsy raspberry hue, with potent raspberry, big riffing spices, brisk acidity. Pleasantly bone dry, with the fruit and intensity to back it up. Mineral salts linger on the quenching finish.Tasted: 26 May 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Bella WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
