2020 Estate Gamay Noir

Te Mata Tasting Note

A bright, deep magenta, Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’20 has the immediate lifted aromas of black cherry, wild strawberry and star anise. The palate is soft and pillowy with a racing-stripe of boysenberry ripple through it. There are dark roses, raspberries, and notes of sandalwood and liquorice. Soft red and black summer fruits are balanced here by a thirst-quenching freshness. Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’20 overflows with deliciousness and fun. Summer in a glass.

Winemaking

Estate Gamay Noir '19

The unique ‘maceration carbonique’ fermentation, which enhances the fruit and floral aromas of the wine, was used for 47% of the grapes. The other 53% received a traditional, warm, red wine fermentation. The resulting wines completed their malolactic fermentation and were matured for seven weeks in seasoned French oak barrels, before blending and bottling.
