Bachelder Bator Gamay Noir Niagara Cru I 13% Whole Cluster 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 has 13% whole cluster in the mix. Wild cherries, fragrant wild raspberries, candle wax glide along the silken palate, with lifted, bright acidity and long, fine tannins framing. The whole cluster brings an alluring lift to the whole. Bright and charming, and ready to enjoy now with a slight chill.Tasted: 05 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
