Gamay is a purple-colored grape variety used to make red wines, most notably grown in Beaujolais and in the Loire Valley around Tours. Its full name is Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc. It is a very old cultivar, mentioned as long ago as the 15th century.
An exciting take on Gamay, dusty, ruby red in colour, aromas of bubble gum, red plum, and a touch of spicy complexity. The palate is delicious, juicy, bursting with crunchy red fruits, and a lovely acid backbone. Designed to be drunk chilled. Match with venison salami or tuna ceviche.
