A balanced flavourful light to midweight red that shows how well suited this grape is to Ontario. The nose shows dry...

Malivoire gamay is my unofficial house red. There is some vintage variation, probably indicating minimal manipulation, but it is always highly drinkable. My impression is that this vintage has a tad less body and richness than the previous two vintages, but a bit more gamay typicity. In any case, it's refreshing, squeaky clean and has outstanding purity of fruit, as I've come to expect from Malivoire.
