Gamay Noir 2016
A fresh and lively nose showing black cherry, blueberry, raspberry, cinnamon and some pretty violet notes. The palate is dry, juicy, light bodied and fresh with light tannins, crisp acidity and flavours of strawberry, orange zest and baking spices all lasting on a long vibrant finish.
An intense nose with pepper, plum, blackberry and some floral notes. The palate is dry and full bodied with juicy balancing acidity and firm, ripe, rustic tannins and plenty of dried raspberry, blackberry, cassis, chocolate, oak and vanilla on the long finish.
Ripe and concentrated with dried black plum, dried black cherry, prune, baking spice and some savoury burlap notes on the nose. The palate is full, big, rich and soft and packed with flavours of plum pudding, dried blueberry and berry compote with firm, ripe tannins to balance the ripe fruit.
Nicely combines ripe blueberry, black cherry and blackberry with complex violet and black pepper notes and a backdrop of dark chocolate. The palate is dry, full bodied and ripe with lovely ripe silky tannins and more of the blue and black fruits joined by peppery spice and dried sage on the long complex finish.
