This is a high intensity wine highlighted by a pin-point precision and my highest rated Gamay EVER with 93pts. This is where concentration and elegance meet! Fruits were sourced from 42 year old vines from Niagara-on-the-Lake. Generous whole cluster fermentation to 1/3 of the grapes brings rustic and earthy components. The nose is gracious with aromas of raspberry jam, stewed strawberry, licorice, violet and orange bell pepper. The texture is soft, but the tannins are firm bringing a serious definition to the flavours. The palate opens up with dark fruit compote, followed by a breeze of dried rose petals while the back-palate shines with multiple layers of pepper, barrel spices, caramel, nut meg and cardamom, leaving so much room for curiosity, intricacy and complexity.
