Haywire Gamay 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis gamay is fermented in small open top tanks with twice daily punch downs for four weeks. The use of 75 percent whole cluster increases its mid-palate weight. Look for deep rich plummy fruit streaked red with a brambly, peppery, savoury herbaceousness, bright acidity, and silky textures. Perfect for a mushroom pizza or a pulled pork sandwich. Haywire was established in 2009, with the first tiny harvest at Switchback Organic Vineyard, starting life as a virtual brand. Today, Haywire is an anchor tenant of the Summerland wine scene, with a new visitor lounge scheduled to open in April 2023. Haywire has always been a winery that cares passionately about terroir, employing a less is more style, utilizing state of the art concrete tanks and amphorae, and gentle winemaking under winemaker Matt Dumayne.Tasted: 29 January 2023Tasted by: Prices:
