Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

13th Street’s 2016 Gamay Noir showcases their new modern-retro label but with that same delicious Gamay inside which Ontario wine lovers are becoming increasing focused on for its food friendly and refreshing characteristics. As Ontario is one of the top producers of world-class Gamay (second only to the French wine region Beaujolais where Gamay is king), they’ve got some great Gamay wines to choose from throughout the Niagara region and this value-priced offering from 13th Street is certainly a fan-favourite. The 2016 Gamay Noir shows dark berries, dark cherry, and pepper on the nose. The palate is juicy and fresh with tart dark fruit, tangy cherry, a hint of cherry cola, along with savoury smoked meat. 100% stainless steel fermented, so as to retain those fresh berry characteristics, the result is a rich and tangy wine that’s very versatile, whether it’s served slightly chilled on a patio in the summer with grilled sausages on a wood fired pizza, or enjoyed in the cooler seasons with Port and black cherry-braised lamb shank – each are fantastic pairings with this wine. Look for this wine in the October 14 Vintages release or buy winery direct. Tasted August 2017. 89+ points. Matt Steeves – www.quercusvino.ca

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
