The unique ‘maceration carbonique’ fermentation, which enhances the fruit and floral aromas of the wine, was used for 65% of the grapes. The other 35% received a traditional, warm, red wine fermentation. The resulting wines completed their malolactic fermentation and were matured for nine weeks in seasoned French oak barrels, before blending and bottling.
Gamay Noir ’21
Te Mata Tasting Note
Candy-apple red and edged in royal purple, Estate Gamay Noir ’21 is bursting with raspberry, Turkish delight, blueberry, wild strawberry, and ripe, black cherry. Its superfloral, red-fruit presence is balanced by subtle notes of smoke, liquorice, sandalwood, and cinnamon. A gorgeous line of bright acidity runs the length of the wine, giving incredible freshness and persistence. A supreme example, Estate Gamay Noir ’21 captivates and refreshes at the same time. Silky, stylish, and simply stunning.
