Ultimately gulpable with delicious layers of dark berries. No oak on this fresh and vibrant Niagara Gamay Noir. Dark berry aromas. Round and smooth. Perfect for meaty sausages and game meats.
Gamay Noir food pairings: grilled salmon, antipasto plate, meaty tomato based pasta, roasted turkey.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Love this Niagara Gamay Noir from 13th Street Winery. Delicate plum and black currant with touches of blackberry, strawberry and earthy minerals on the refreshing, flavourful finish. Light and silky tannins, wrap everything up nicely. This begs for a Steelhead trout partner! Light enough to pair with meaty fish, or to enjoy chilled on it's own. Enjoy!
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Gamay Noir is becoming increasingly popular with wine lovers for its food friendly and refreshing characteristics. Also, it just happens that Ontario is one of the top producers of world-class Gamay (second only to the French wine region Beaujolais where they produce exclusively Gamay), so we’ve got some great Gamay wines to choose from right here in Ontario. 13th Street Winery has become known as a leader in the production of premium Ontario Gamay Noir and this is a great value-priced offering. Their 2015 vintage Gamay Noir shows dark berries, dark cherry, and pepper on the nose. The palate is juicy and fresh with tart dark fruit, tangy cherry, and savoury smoked meat. Enjoy this wine with Port and black cherry-braised lamb shank. A fantastic pairing! Only 800 cases produced so this wine won't last long but will be great when enjoyed now until 2020. Tasted January 2017. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.mattswinepicks.com

Red berries on the nose with that unmistakeable gamay pepper. Excellent complexity on the palate, medium bodied with a jammy, stewed fruit finish - well done!
|No oak on this fresh and vibrant Niagara Gamay Noir. Dark berry aromas. Round and smooth. Perfect for planked salmon. What an amazing Gamay with layers of cherry fruit, strawberry, meat and white pepper. it's medium bodied, fantastic acidity but with a whole bunch of cherry fruit on the finish. - Community Wine Reviews|
