2013 Estate Gamay Noir

Te Mata Tasting Note

Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’13 has a lovely, vivid crimson colour with penetrating aromas of dark roses, cherry liqueur, crushed raspberry, and wild strawberry. An absolute fruit bomb, the palate is ripe and juicy, with a mix of black and red berries and cherries, and refreshing, silky tannins that extend the finish.

Winemaking

Estate Gamay Noir '13

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