Bachelder Bator Gamay Noir Niagara Cru I 100% Destemmed 2020

Four Mile Creek, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThomas Bachelder, long heralded with his skilled hand at chardonnay and pinot noir, has turned his eye towards gamay, with a series of releases from the 2020 vintage. This is one of 3 wines using Bator Vineyard fruit this year, a site close to the Welland Canal, in Four Mile Creek. As the label states, this cuvee is entirely destemmed, leaving a silken wild strawberry, green raspberry palate, with white pepper spicing, and softly sticky tannins to frame. There's a bright zippy freshness to this green edged wine, making this a charmer. Enjoy now, with a slight chill.Tasted: 05 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
