  • A crisp summer red — Gamay at its best

    Tastes like
    Dark berries, cran-pomegranate and black cherry. Notes of herbal and pine, with a smoky finish. Lots of depth and texture, but refreshing, silky.
    Pairs with
    Your weekend grill-fest with leaner protein: salmon or swordfish, Portobello mushrooms, striploin or wild boar. Fresh, rare lamb chops will kill. Pretty much any barbecue will like this wine.
    Good for
    When you feel like red wine, even though it’s warm and everyone is drinking white. Chill it a bit, and drink generously.

    Why we're drinking this
    The grape is Gamay, the winery is Malivoire, and the winemaker is Shiraz Mottiar. Given that his name alludes to an entirely different grape, Shiraz (the man) is a Gamay fanatic. He makes multiple versions of Gamay at Malivoire using grapes from different vineyards. And we love them all. But this one, from the Courtney vineyard, stands out with mind-blowing complexity and finesse, while retaining that characteristic Gamay “lightness” that we love. We predict Ontario Gamay is poised for greatness and Malivoire is leading the way. Trust us: Get to know Gamay. Get to know this Gamay. It’ll be your new favourite.

    Tasting note
    Bright and generous dark berry fruit with subtle herbal notes, some wild forest notes, and a lovely smoky finish. Lighter in style, with only 13% alcohol, but there’s nuance and complexity here. You might just call it delicious.
