We recently enjoyed a mature wine from Beaujolais so I thought it a good idea that we try a wine from the cellar made from the same grape in the New World. Some years ago we enjoyed a week’s holiday in the Okanagan and the memory is still vivid – wine, food and spectacular scenery.
Glenugie, Okanagan Valley, Barrel Aged, Gamay Noir 2005 This mature Gamay sports black pepper, mushroom, forest floor and dried currants in the nose. In the mouth, the wine is light-bodied, fruity and acidic, with a soft caress of tannin.
