88% Gamay, 12% Zweigelt
Rama Vineyard, Osoyoos
These grapes are from a new grower for me from relatively young vines, sustainably farmed from a cooler pocket in Osoyoos. This is so tutti-frutti! It was such good juicy, ripe fruit. On the nose this is like candied fruit: red currants, red cherries, fresh strawberries. It’s complex and the Zweigelt brings a brambleberry note to this deep concentrated wine. Fermented in amphora this lends a lean note, and it should age well. But for now, it’s super refreshing, with a deep rich colour, it has a tiny bit of spritz, so serve it chilled, it’s so food friendly.
