It’s a bit unusual in the land of Syrah. But this estate is home to a little patch of old vine Gamay which does very nice things in the bottle. The wine has the bright, vibrant red fruits typical of the Gamay grape. But on the finish, there’s a kick of black pepper more typical of the Rhone Valley. It makes for an appealing combination. It’s complex, a little geeky, and highly drinkable – a mix that we find pretty irresistible.

After decanting this wine was all bright fruit and stony acidity. Fantastic!

Fruit is somewhat lost in the Brett. Maybe not the best bottle

2011 Gamay. Very intense, more like a northern Rhone when it comes to structure, not a light Bougelais, classic delicious Gamay flavors though, fantastic with curry
