Orofino Vineyards Gamay 2018

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom three Cawston vineyards, this gamay was fermented on skins before a gentle pressing into older French barrels, where it rested until the following March, when it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Pouring a lighter, slightly cloudy hue, this gamay is juicy with forest berries, wild cherry, summer rhubarb, and dusted with soft spices. Tannins are near negligible, just a slight hug around the pure fruited core. Such a charmer; one of BC's top gamay, for sure. #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 20 February 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Orofino VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
