Fred Wines Bright Side Gamay 2020
Produced by well-established Niagara Winemaker Fred DiProfio, Fred Wines is a small, family-owned operation, crafting wines using grapes from the Niagara area that reflect the region and their roots.
With 20% whole cluster fermentation and 3 day maceration in stainless steel tanks, this 100% malolactic Gamay Noir went into neutral French oak barrels for 8 months.
This wine pays homage to the sunny side of life, celebrating the bright side of Gamay, a grape known for its warm tones and vivacity. This easy-drinking wine is lively and aromatic with delectable aromas of red apple, blueberry and bing cherry, that introduce a hodgepodge of flavours on the palate. Together with juicy notes of raspberry and blueberry, scrumptious seasoning of celery salt, toasted fennel and flint seem to flock together on the shoulder of John Wayne’s leather jacket.
