Gamay Red Wine

Gamay is a cool climate varietal planted almost exclusively in the Beaujolais region in France and accounts for almost all red wine production there. Given such growing conditions, this makes for fruity, light-bodied, elegant wines often reminiscent of pinot noir, whose typically high acidic content gives them an added vibrancy. To temper this acidity, however, gamay commonly undergoes a vinification process known as carbonic maceration by which uncrushed fruit is fermented in a sealed, carbon dioxide-rich state. Here, juice ferments whilst still in the grape, ultimately imparting a heightened fruitiness and low tannic content to a finished wine. A wine that is often hugely quaffable, overly food-friendly and full of enticing aromas and flavours of violet, lilac, sour cherry, strawberry, pepper and earthy minerality.
