Valentine’s Vino

What better to celebrate this day of love than the bright, ruby hues of a Gamay?

The traditional grape of Beaujolais, wine from Gamay can be quite lovely. Not overly sweet, I enjoy it’s sweetart flavour and uplifting acidity.
Today I’m sipping a glass of Malivoire’s VQA Small Lot Gamay from the Niagara Peninsula. On the nose is a combination of Swedish berry, sour cherry, currant and raspberry. Some also may like the soft tannins of this thin-skinned grape and its accessible but not too fruit-forward palate.

This wine doesn’t generally stand up well to food so, enjoy on its own to drown out the Valentine’s Day sorrows or with your favourite sipping mate!
