2023 Skin n Bones Gamay


Out of stock



Gamay from the Adelaide Hills is one to watch, and the vines that made this one are some of the oldest in the region. A little smoky, a touch reductive, and with a delicate purity that is the hallmark of the varietal. At times dismissed as the lesser sibling to Pinot Noir – a victim, we would argue, of the stylistic choice to serve Beaujolais in its infancy – Gamay can in fact yield a far more beautiful, subtle result. A citric spritz – a common theme in this cool, late vintage – and strawberry steam from a pot of jam. On the palate a chewy, red lolly. If this happens to be your gateway into Hills Gamay, enjoy the enticing journey ahead. 100% Gamay from Brackenwood in Kutipo. 100% whole bunch fermentation in concrete open fermenters. 15 days on skin and pressed to 2- to 3-year old French barriques for 10 months. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
