The tale of two Gamay's - for the 2013 Vintage we made two sparkling Gamay's. We made them exactly the same way so you could taste the difference the vineyard makes. They each have their own personalities while having similar dry styles. Mix and match a 12 or six pack with its partner the sparkling Gamay from Westbank. You will be amazed at the difference the vineyard makes.
Whispers of strawberry, rhubarb, and cranberry mark your first impression, along with a hint of delicate floral. The red berry continues on the palate, along with gentle pink grapefruit, and proceeds to a long strawberry mousse finish. The natural acidity keeps everything light, crisp and clean. This wine is a delicate expression showing off the uniqueness of the region and this underappreciated grape.

MWCWine expert Kurtis Kolt wrote about this wine on the MWC Wine Blog: "The Westbank version, from the cooler lakeside area in the north is a touch more crisp and flinty with rhubarb and alpine strawberry notes, where the Oliver Gamay that’s literally grown in an arid, desert climate is ever-so-slightly richer with cranberry and strawberry shortcake notes."
