Te Mata ‘Estate Vineyards’ Hawke’s Bay Gamay Noir 2017

Gamay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Mar-2018
Pale red colour with moderate depth, lighter edged with slight purple hues. The nose is fresh and taut with bright and aromatic bubble gum fermentation esters, red cherry fruit, with strawberry and raspberry elements and confectionary. Light-medium bodied, the palate is aromatic with bright and lifted cherry and strawberry fruit along with fruit bon-bons and bubble-gum esters. The palate is tight and slender with light tannin textures and zesty, crisp acidity carrying the fruit. This is light and marked by carbonic maceration lift. Serve with antipasto over the next 2 years. Gamay Noir a Jus Blanc fruit from the ‘Woodthorpe Terraces’ vineyard, 53% undergoing carbonic maceration fermentation and 43% traditional fermentation to 12.5% alc. the wine aged 9 weeks in seasoned oak barrels. 16.5+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $22.00
