Te Mata Estate 'Gamay Noir' 2021, Hawkes Bay
A supreme silky tasting Gamay Noir
The unique ‘maceration carbonique’ fermentation, which enhances the fruit and floral aromas of the wine, was used for 65% of the grapes. The other 35% received a traditional, warm, red wine fermentation.
Candy-apple red and edged in royal purple, Estate Gamay Noir ’21 is bursting with raspberry, turkish delight, blueberry, wild strawberry, and ripe, black cherry. Its superfloral, red-fruit presence is balanced by subtle notes of smoke, liquorice, sandalwood, and cinnamon. A gorgeous line of bright acidity runs the length of the wine, giving incredible freshness and persistence.
