100% Gamay. The vineyards are 330M above sea level, and the soils are made up of pink granite, clay and quartz. The grapes are macerated whole bunch for 7 days - with direct press Gamay poured over the top to create a semi carbonic maceration. Aged for 7 months in fibreglass tank. Not fined or filtered, and zero added SO2. 11.5% alc.

Very light colour. Beautiful aromatics on the nose – so lifted and perfumed with strawberries, roses and watermelon rind. The smell is honestly incredible. Silky and slippery to drink, with strawberry shortcake, boysenberry, hints of aniseed, watermelon and rind. It’s delicate and light like a Poulsard, but with an extra bit of pizzaz. Very rare to taste Gamay like this. Sweet fruit with a tart border and a little hint of white pepper on finish. Nice acidity, fine line drinking and just superb. Serve slightly chilled.
