This fantastic Gamay reminds me of a Cru Beaujolais (which I love).
It is brilliant ruby in colour, with just a hint of purple. The nose is fragrant with sweet raspberry and maraschino cherries, a bouquet of violets and lilacs and fine peppery spice undertones. The palate is fresh and juicy but is not lacking structure or focus. The texture is generally smooth but the powdery tannins have some grip.
My favourite Haywire wine of 2012!
Pair with spicy sausages, white meats or with a cheese fondue.
