Winery Tasting Notes
Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’12 is a fabulous bright crimson.
The nose shows aromas and flavours of fresh roses, black cherries, raspberries, cinnamon and marzipan.
The palate is full-flavoured, very ripe and supple, with refreshing, fine tannins and a soft, dry finish.
Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir is an incredibly versatile wine, partnering with any food and is particularly good with spicy cuisines, matching its vibrant fruit and soft tannins.
It can be enjoyed immediately upon release and can be served at room temperature or, during summer, lightly chilled.
