Vintage & Viticulture

Made from the Gamay Noir grape a Nouveau is traditionally produced to mark the end of the harvest and is always officially released for sale on the third Thursday of November. Picked on September 25h, around the world, the race is on to be among the first to taste and enjoy this vintage’s first wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

It is amazing to think that just weeks before this wine was a cluster of grapes in the vineyard but by a rapid fermentation, and a quick bottling, all is ready at the midnight hour. The Fool, with all his worldly possessions in one small pack, is always on his way to a brand new beginning.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of fresh juicy cherries. Replicated on the palate, flavours of delightful red cherries with complementary white pepper and finishing with fresh rhubarb fruit.

Food Pairings:

Perfect for Christmas dinner, slow roasted turkey, sage stuffing and cranberry sauce.
