Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Haywire Gamay Rosé

Haywire Gamay Rosé 2019

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOrganically farmed gamay from higher altitude Secrest Mountain Vineyard was whole bunch pressed and native fermented to dryness in a mix of concrete (80%) and stainless (20%). The wine was then pressed to concrete where it rested on for six months prior to filtering and bottling. Always a highlight, this year's is the choicest yet, with the limestone laced soils and light touch of winemaker Matt Dumayne resulting in a lifted, tight, mineral-laden rosé, positively humming with energy, driving wild strawberries, light rhubarb, pink grapefruit on a sleek, lightly lees lined, juicy palate. Subtle and savoury, finishing with a desert scrubby herb allure.Tasted: 28 May 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.00 winery direct Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
