Gamay Nouveau - The Fool 2018

VQA Niagara River

Vintage & Viticulture

Made from the Gamay Noir grape a Nouveau is traditionally produced to mark the end of the harvest and is always officially released for sale on the third Thursday of November. Picked inn September, around the world, the race is on to be among the first to taste and enjoy this vintage’s first wine.

Winemaker’s Notes

It is amazing to think that just weeks before this wine was a cluster of grapes in the vineyard but by a rapid fermentation, and a quick bottling, all is ready at the midnight hour. The Fool, with all his worldly possessions in one small pack, is always on his way to a brand new beginning.

Tasting Notes

Characteristic aromas of fresh juicy cherries and bubblegum which are replicated on the palate. These delightful flavours are complemented by a hint of white pepper finishing with tart rhubarb fruit. Perfect for a holiday turkey, sausage stuffing and cranberry sauce. Will also pair nicely with your favourite pizza.
