Rigour & Whimsy Gamay Noir

Rigour & Whimsy Gamay Noir 2019

West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLike last year, this gamay came from a West Kelowna vineyard, and was whole cluster and partial carbonic. This year, however, they did more foot treading, stomping about half the grapes. This was then aged 5 months in used puncheons. Tight and nervy, with green branch, pine, rhubarb and crunchy cranberry acidity. There's a sapid red currant note slicking the very slight 10 degree palate, finishing sprightly and brisk and with a twinge of balsamic. As last year, super natty, and needing a solid chill. Smart move to screw cap.Tasted: 28 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct Producer: Rigour & WhimsyDistributors: Winery Direct
