2019 Easthope Gamay, Hawke’s Bay
Rose petal, raspberry and forest floor notes combine for a captivating aroma. The palate beguiles with those same characters layered on top of a firm yet velveteen texture.
This is our first single vineyard Gamay offering from the Quinn’s meticulously managed ‘Two Terraces Vineyard’ in Maraekakaho. The artisanal technique of fermenting as whole bunches with traditional foot stomping, followed by maturation in a combination of seasoned oak puncheons and our stone egg tanks has produced a wine with an ethereal combination of fruit, mineral, floral and herbal elements.
