Blue Mountain Estate Cuvée Gamay Noir 2018

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe first, Estate Cuvée tier, looks a lot like its predecessors; a very fine gamay. The secret ingredient is that savoury sagebrush south Okanagan spice that is sprinkled through its slightly reductive, earthy palate (decanting is a must) marked with soupy black fruits flecked with tobacco spice. This wine excels at the dinner table with duck, chicken or mushroom-based dishes. Watch out Beaujolais. The vines are a mix of ages from a decade through 30-years-old. It ferments with native yeast and is aged for a year in used four-year-old French oak barrels and puncheons.Tasted: 03 February 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 26.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
