Orofino Vineyards Gamay (1.5L MagBag) 2021

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of BCs best gamays just got better thanks to its MagBag packaging that reduces its carbon footprint to practically nothing. The 1.5-litre environmentally friendly pouches give you a month’s worth of tasting time with freshness and stability, which is gone in hours from bottled wine. This packaging is a wake-up call for the industry. As for the gamay, it is delicious. Fresh, bright, and juicy with plenty of acidity and low alcohol is all you need to know. The grapes come off three Cawston vineyards and go into older French oak barrels and concrete tanks post-ferment. Expect a juicy blend of red berries and rhubarb with no tannins leaving it soft and slippery. A charming dinner wine perfect for a Margherita pizza or a grilled chicken salad.Tasted: 07 December 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
