Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Juicy, vibrant, alive. Gamay is a great "summer" red for me filled with juicy berries and hints of spice, nothing too heavy or serious.

Great Mozzarella pairing wine. Sure, if I was JUST eating mozzarella on its own, I would not pair it with gamay. But when I think of mozzarella, I think PIZZA, and when I think pizza, I think gamay!

Have some fun and make yourself gourmet pizza tonight. Buy premade pizza dough or crust or find yourself a good pizza dough recipe. If you do homemade, buy 00 flour from your local italian deli (where you might be picking up your delicious cheese. Serious. It makes a difference). Pizza sauce: stir together 1 can tomato paste, 1 grated garlic clove, glug of olive oil, splash of balsamic vingear, 1 tbsp of warm water (or more for thinner sauce), salt and pepper. Toppings: generous topping of mozzarella, sprinkling of parmesan (optional) and a package of wild mushrooms sauteed (oyster or king oyster). Bake in 375 oven until cheese bubbling and starting to brown. Top with a handful or 2 of arugala tossed in olive oil. Sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you like some spice.

Natalie's Review

Malivoire Wine Company Gamay 2013, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario VQA, Canada: Vibrant, electric and alive in the glass: this characterful, medium-bodied red wine shows just why Gamay could be the best red wine for Niagara. Luscious red fruits and a wonder texture. Pair with roast turkey. Drink: 2014-2018. 591313 13% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. August 16, 2014 Best Value Red Wine.

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.
