This combo of gamay and pinot is, in my mind, better than either of the single varietal component wines from Joie...

An intriguing blend (Pinot Noir & Gamay) you don't often see outside Beaujolais - and certainly not in Canada. The ever-reliable Joie Farm does a splendid job here.

Nose of brambles, cherry, sage, dried cranberry, rhubarb, pepper.

Light in weight, but with a vibrant acidity and depth of flavour. Bright cherry on the palate, spicy and herbaceous through the finish.

I'd happily cellar for up to five years.

Tasted May 2015.
