Rust Wine Co. Lazy River Vineyard Gamay 2022

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom South Cawston's Lazy River Vineyard, this clone 509 gamay was planted in 1996 on a mix of sand, clay loams and granite. It was fermented whole berry (carbonic) and aged 4 months in older barrels. This has lightened considerably since the last time I tasted it a few years ago. Opening with a swing of youthful reduction, this moves into tart plum, ripe rhubarb, and green tobacco, and buzzy, crunchy cranberry acidity which livens a furry, softer palate. The finish is kissed with cola and light spices. Still figuring it out, this is a brighter future for #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 17 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
