Haywire Gamay 2018

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaHaywire has an excellent feel for the gamay noir grape, and this wine is no exception. Finley spiced and perfectly ripe it comes off the 15-hectare Secrest Mountain Vineyard, just north of Oliver. This is farmed organically and will be shortly certified if it isn’t already so. It has a luxurious texture for a cool climate gamay but with plenty of acidity and freshness and even more juicy thyme and raspberry. It was fermented in a combination of open-top and concrete fermenters before ageing for eight months in large Nico Velo concrete tanks. A friendly style red that reaches its zenith with pork and mushroom dishes.Tasted: 30 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.99 winery online, grocery, VQA and select private retailers Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
