Canada — Ontario • $19.95 • 89/100

This Gamay is sourced from Peller’s Carlton St. Vineyard, one of their warmest sites. Grapes are destemmed but not crushed, and the wine is aged in older, neutral oak: 50% in 600-litre demi-muids and 50% in larger format oak vats. The wine is transparent ruby-red in hue. The nose is highly aromatic, presenting aromas of fully ripe cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit, with light earthy, savoury and pencil lead undertones. The wine is dry, with bright acidity, moderate alcohol and soft, silky tannins. The palate is juicy, with some ripe fruit richness and a hint of red licorice, but never loses the bright, fresh character at its core. Compelling Gamay. • Tasted 2017-01-13 • LCBO id#0 • Find it at your nearest LCBO
