Lyons Will Estate Gamay 2019

 


Gamay brings nothing but big smiles and thrusts you into the pleasure zone. My suggested food match is a large bowl of chips straight out of the air fryer with some footy or a trashy reality TV program to watch. Damn, this slides down so well. In the words of Meg Ryan, "Yes, yes, yes!"

Medium-bodied, it's such a luscious and slurpable wine. 70% went through carbonic maceration with 100% whole bunches and spent five weeks on skins. It was then basket pressed to old French oak for 11 months. 

Captivating scents of lavender get you in the mood. Blue and purple fruits cascade over one another delivering a wine of supreme juiciness and delicious moreishness. A little acid crunch and an ever so fine spice chimes in late, but honestly, how can you stop at two glasses? Brilliant!

Drink to three years.
