Rod Easthope left Craggy Range to start up his own winery. Together with his wife Emma they have been know to create gems that are a must try. This is one of them. Gamay is an old French varietal that is the perfect soft easy drinker. Great as an apartif, but complex enough to stand up to dinner. You can even serve it lightly chilled if you wish.
The winery writes "The 2016 relies more on violet florals and dried herb influences aromatically than the 2015. But it still has the mineral tar/graphite like quality too. These characters garnish the core of red fleshed plum fruit. The palate has a silky fine textural entry which allows waves of flavour to emerge, and then finishes with that stem-tannin influenced twist on the finish."
