2015 Estate Gamay Noir

Te Mata Tasting Note

A vibrant crimson with a bright purple edge, Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’15 has a beguiling fragrance of rose petals and crushed ripe raspberries, with a floral citrus blossom twist. The palate is refreshing, soft and rich, with an immediate delicacy. Plum, black cherry and notes of cocoa and French vanilla add to the wine’s charm and luxurious, velvet feel. All the fruits and flowers of a great New Zealand summer! A jewel.

Winemaking

Estate Gamay Noir '15

The unique ‘maceration carbonique’ fermentation, which enhances the fruit and floral aromas of the wine, was used for 50% of the grapes. The other 50% received a traditional, warm, red wine fermentation. The resulting wines completed their malolactic fermentation and were matured for seven weeks in seasoned French oak barrels, before blending and bottling.

Estate Vineyards Gamay Noir ’15 is a single vineyard wine from Te Mata Estate’s Woodthorpe Terraces vineyard, harvested on 30 March 2015.
