There isn’t a lot of Gamay grown in BC, but it is one of the most popular grapes around the world – often grown to be part of a blend.
We are starting off Mystery Case #15 with this VQA red from the Middle Bench, near Keremeos. They have been organic farming their Robin Ridge vineyard since 1997.
Reviewers say “red licorices” flavours. …fellow imbiber asks “What about gummy bears flavours?”
Treehouse homemade Chilli the first night and prune/fig stuffed pork tenderloin the second night. All went down well with this elegant and crisp Gamay made from organic grapes, estate grown. There is an easy and very well balanced finish.
We will have to watch out for others in their repertoire.
