About 2019 Gamay Noir Block 28 "Big Bro"
Affectionally known as the “Big Bro” our Gamay Noir Block 28 is part of our Small Lot Block Series. This refined, deep, bold wine is an excellent example of a classic Beaujolais Cru-style Gamay. Look for notes of raspberry, strawberry, white pepper, licorice and chocolate. The wine is a deep violet colour with velvety, smooth tannins. Barrel aged 10 months in exceptional French oak. This small lot production made only 110 cases.
Behind The Wine
Our focus has always been big reds, and Gamay is not a traditional big red. We almost pulled out our Gamay to plant more Cab Sav instead—thankfully we didn’t! By shrinking the fruit and producing smaller, intense grapes, we ended up with a monster Gamay. It’s as big as a Cab and full of mouthwatering flavour.
