I’ve reviewed the wines of Niagara (Canada) winery Pearl Morissette before. I’ve been lucky to visit three times, and I love the brave, creative approach of Francois Morissette, who’s making some really interesting wines. One of the four varieties he specializes in is Gamay (the others are Chardonnay, Riesling and Cabernet Franc), and this is one of the most interesting Niagara Gamays each year, in a region that seems well suited to the variety. These wines are not utterly conventional in every way, but they are beautiful, well thought out, and utterly drinkable.

12.8% alcohol. 378 cases made. Vivid raspberry, cherry and spice nose with some meaty, savoury notes. The palate is fresh and vivid with juicy, spicy personality and some nice crunchy savouriness. Such lovely raspberry fruit at the core. Distinctive and lovely. 92/100

  1. Have you seen the Rippon Gamay from Central Otago? I just tried the 2014 – similar spice and meaty notes alongside the red fruit (to my palate anyway) gives some nice complexity. Stunning wine!
