Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The winemaker used "seasoned" barrels for this vintage of Gamay Noir (18 months) which means there is very little oak imparted to the wine. It also allows the fruit to shine through - and shine it does. Complex aromas of sour cherry, raspberry and white pepper. Low tannins with medium body and a medium finish. This is a nicely balanced wine to pair with your pizza or charcuterie board.
Lynn Van Der Linde rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Gamay Noir from the Grange Winery, Prince Edward County is a brilliant garnet red in the glass, aromas bursting with ripe red cherries and raspberries and some earthiness and black pepper following on the palate. A wine with personality and unexpected spiciness that hits your mouth mid-gulp.
Pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes, from Duck Confit to steak salad.
Tasted Sept 2017.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

There's lots of beetroot and sour cherry in this wine, with some pretty herb and earth notes. Great acidity and great minerality. 89 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of cherry fruit plus some medicinal notes from being aged. I'm liking this wine today, but am unsure about it's potential to age further - Lots of cherry pie without the sweetness.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Red fruit, red fruit, and more red fruit.…
Presentation: Plain, simple, black-on-white label
Appearance: Pale ruby
Nose: Medium nose, with notes of red cherry, Concord grapes, and allspice
Taste: Dry, light body, low acidity, soft tannins, with notes sour cherries, cranberries and green, blackcurrant leaf
Finish: Medium sour red fruit
Overall impression: This wine is full-on red fruit. Its lightness means it would be good on the patio or with turkey, pork or other lighter fare
Value: 3.5/5
