Lailey Vineyards 2005 Gamay - $13.95

You have probably heard me (or read anyway) talk about the new penchant in Ontario for making fuller bodied more age-worthy Gamay … which is not usually the norm for this Beaujolais grape … well it’s nice to see that the art of the light bodied quaffing version has not been lost either. Award winning winemaker Derek Barnett makes this one as an easy drinking, chillable (if you wish) quaffer. The Blackberries and blueberries on the nose are followed up by slightly oaky, cherry and plum flavours in the mouth. Simple, sweet and easy – what Gamay, was originally, intended to be. Available at the winery only.
