Description

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.

Bella Wines is a sparkling wine "house" that makes white bubble from Chardonnay and sparkling rose from 100% Gamay. They also make 2 Gamay sparklers and this one is from the warmer of the two sites at the Secrest Mountain Vineyards in Oliver, BC. The nose is slightly muted while the palate displays a red berry fiesta of wild strawberries, raspberries, rosehips and hibiscus. Bone dry, fresh and vibrant with lively acidity and toasty yeasty notes amidst fine bubbles. Very pretty. Tasted June 2014
