Oak Bay Vineyard Gamay Noir 2018

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWow, what a charming gamay noir from St. Hubertus, and a pure delight to sip. Juicy, peppery vibrant black cherry laced with dark plums and forest berries. The acidity is fresh but not over the top, and is the perfect tonic to the rooty, cinnamon finish. Planted in 1964, 1990, 1999 at 350-440m on clay, sand and gravels, this was fermented in a blend of stainless, French, and American oak. Fine value.Tasted: 14 June 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 18.50 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: St. Hubertus & Oak Bay Estate WineryDistributors: Harvest Select Wines
