Peller Estates 2007 Private Reserve Gamay Noir
You may be thinking to yourself that $18.95 seems a little high priced for a Gamay – but I think you best put your lips and nose to this one before passing such a harsh judgment. First, we don’t have just any Gamay here – it’s the Gamay from that beauty of a growing season known as 2007 – quite possibly the best ever in Ontario. That allowed the fruit to ripen fully and because of the lack of rain it concentrated all the flavours into very small berries; so although the tonnage yield, the grapes were of very high quality. Now that you are armed with some background here is the rest of the story … The nose is big on cherry, which is to be expected from Gamay, but there is also plenty of raspberry and some nice vanilla notes in there too. The taste follows the cherry theme, big cherry, with cinnamon and a touch of sweet oak flavouring. This wine is light and lovely – perfect to serve around the holidays and it has such a beautiful festive colour to it too. Price: $18.95
