Gamay 37, Haywire Gamay Noir 2016, Okanagan Valley, Canada

For the latest in this series on Gamay, I’m heading to Canada’s Okanagan Valley. Here, Gamay does really well: I reckon more should be planted! I’ve been following Haywire’s work in general for a few years now, and this is their best Gamay yet I reckon.

Haywire Gamay Noir 2016, Okanagan Valley, Canada
This comes from two different vineyard sites, and it’s made with a mixture of whole bunch and destemmed fruit. It’s really supple and sweetly fruited with a softness to the texture, but also some spicy detail. Very fresh and expressive, with a nice sappy twist to the fruit. There’s a cherry pit/almond edge to the fruit, and it’s pure and fine with lovely structure, and layered complexity. A really serious Gamay. 93/100
