Bella Wines Gamay Noir Pet-Nat Mariani Vineyard Clone 509 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is one of two 2020 gamay pét-nats from Naramata Bench's organically farmed Mariani Vineyard, each made from a different clone, processed and picked the same. Clone 509 is the most common gamay clone found in BC. They left this on skins overnight for a darker hue, nearly a sparkling red. Crunchy black raspberry, rhubarb, peppercorns rule the punchy palate, with an alluring plum blossom lift and a riffing savoury stoniness on the finish. Serious and smashable at 10.8%.Tasted: 08 July 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Bella WinesDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
