2020 Gamay Rose
This is the winemaker’s favourite this year. Like the best Georgian Bay fruit, this wine showcases the area’s remarkable terroir. With just a light blush colour, expect an intriguing nose of saffron, green pepper, cut hay, boxwood, subtle plum notes and lots of evidence of intensive lees contact.
Rather than the overwhelming berry fruit of many rosés, think of crisp Georgian Bay breezes, exposed limestone, lush green hay fields, and shady Escarpment glens. It all makes sense given the Gamay is from an established vineyard just outside Clarksburg. Unfiltered, wild yeast, full secondary fermentation, and hand bottled.
Like all the small batch series, this was hand-bottled in such small quantities that we hand-write every label. Only 26 cases are available, the smallest batch we’ve ever made.
