Natalie's Score: 88/100

Peppery back cherry on the nose with great vibrancy and juiciness on the palate. Medium-bodied and lively. Drink with grilled chicken.

Gamay Noir food pairings: lamb burgers, cedar-planked salmon.

Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

In 1395 the Duke of Burgundy referred to gamay noir as a wine of "very great and horrible harshness". Evidently the good Duke had not experienced Tawse Gamay Noir, a light and lovely red that the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals like to pair with frisbees, cheese and charcuterie at our annual girlfriend picnic by the lake.
Winner of top winery honours at the Wine Access Canadian Wine Awards for three years running, Tawse offers their first-ever Gamay with this 2011 vintage. Concentrated aromas of cherry, red plum and brambly raspberry are all equally well represented on the palate. A clean, bright acidity provides tangy lift. This lithe and lively Gamay is loaded with character and has the pluck to cellar 2-3 years. Taste it tonight. Medium-bodied & Fruity. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013
