Gamay Noir - Cherry Avenue, 2019
Shipped and sold by Tawse Winery
Aged for 6 months in French oak barrels, 20% of which were new, this Gamay possesses an attractive medium ruby colour. The nose shows beautiful and fruity aromas of brambleberry, Bing cherry, black tea, and a touch baking spices. On the palate, it is light to medium-bodied, juicy, suggesting notes of fresh Bing cherry, a touch of black tea and baking spices. The tannins are soft, and the finish is bright, balanced and long.
Food Pairings: This wine would pair beautifully well with a charcuterie board, beef carpaccio, gourmet sausage pizza or a pork rillette with balsamic mustard. The Cherry Avenue Gamay Noir is also a wine that can be enjoyed on its own.
The 2019 vintage was a featured wine in June's Wine Club package, 2022.
