Bella Wines Gewmay 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThough known for their exclusive gamay and chardonnay fizz, Jay has been experimenting with small lot productions of other fun wines. This is a traditional method blend of Gew and Gamay, as the name hints. The gew saw 9 days of skin contact before being added to the gamay. The whole finished wild ferment in tank and then spent 6 months in bottle before disgorge with a small tip of sulphur and no dosage. Pouring a deep cherry hue, this charms with gew's gentle apricot and peach blossom florality woven with crunchy cherry, red currant, black tea. Ample juicy acidity streams this youthful red sparkler to a brisk, dry, white pepper finish. The beauty balance makes for a lovely pairing, ideally with glazed ribs / tofu, or fried duck.Tasted: 27 July 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
