Gamay Blush Estate Series

Gamay Blush Estate Series Wine Details
Price: $13.95 per bottle

Description: This wine was created by allowing a portion of our Estate grown Gamay grapes to sit on skins for 72 hours only, which resulted in a deep salmon color. It is well balanced with fresh fruit flavors of strawberry, raspberry and red cherry. A blend of these flavors tantalizes the palate and releases into a long finish.

Varietal Definition
The red grape of Beaujolais. Vinified by a process known as 'macération carbonique'* if produces light, fruit driven wines for early consumption. At home in the granite hills of Beaujolais it is a vigorous producer but susceptible to rot. Sometimes blended with Pinot Noir under the appellation 'Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains'. Also grown quite extensively in the Loire Valley notably in Touraine.
