Uva Non Grata Gamay 2020
$25.00 – $69.00
This tastes like a Beaujolais from a really good vintage but it is not Beaujolais, it’s actually a Rhone producer. Gamay loves the granite/siliceous soils of the vineyards in the hills to the North West of Lyon in eastern France. 2019 was a warm, dry year across France and the grapes were hand-picked deliberately early to maintain freshness. In the cellar, grapes are vinified using traditional carbonic maceration techniques and minimum handling to keep the up front fruity style.This is made from a Gamay clone that gives smaller bunches with more flavour. Bouncy, crunchy Gamay, this no-fuss wine is an irresistible fruit bomb packed with amazing primary fruit aromas, delicious soft red berry flavours and a note of dark chocolate. Gorgeous Gamay at its best.
This is a wine that has enough intensity to match up to simple duck dishes and it has soft enough tannins not to clash with any spicy heat. For a truly amazing experience the carbonic notes and gluggable factor work really well with barbecued chicken. Oh so good with the chips and gravy too!!!
Fun quality drinking with an X factor it is little wonder that this is fast becoming one of our best selling wines. As I keep saying “don’t take my word for it, these Healesvillians are all over a good wine for a great price.”
