2021 Amoise Gamay Noir, Hawke’s Bay
“New to the fold is the Amoise Gamay Noir 2021. I was very excited to have access to two different clones of Gamay this year from the exceptional Two Terraces vineyard in the Mangatahi Terraces. Ian & Linda Quinn are conscientious and detail oriented growers, and the quality of their grapes are exceptional. I drew inspiration from my time working in Beaujolais, and made this as a blend as the clones were picked almost 2 weeks apart. The first component is 100% carbonic maceration for 2 weeks and blended with a semi-carbonic portion. The final wine is light and soft on the palate. Definitely one to be served lightly chilled!” - Amy Farnsworth.
