Te Mata Tasting Note
An electric, candy-apple red, fresh, and full of appeal, Estate Gamay Noir ’22 charms with intense wild strawberry, bubble-gum aromatics, and notes of ripe watermelon and red cherry. The palate is goose-down soft, creamy, and lightly spiced with clove, anise, and cinnamon. Estate Gamay Noir ’22 is a marriage of tempting textures, and summer-bright, ultra-ripe, red-fruit freshness.

Winemaking

Estate Gamay Noir '22

The unique ‘maceration carbonique’ fermentation, which enhances the fruit and floral aromas of the wine, was used for 60% of the grapes. The other 40% received a traditional, warm, red wine fermentation. The resulting wines completed their malolactic fermentation and were matured for nine weeks in seasoned French oak barrels, before blending and bottling.
