Te Mata Estate Gamay Noir

Beaujolais drinkability meets New Zealand sun. 

Gamay is normally found in France's Beaujolais region, where using the unique Carbonic Maceration method, it produces bright, fruity, incredibly moreish wines. That technique is used for about half of the grapes in Te Mata's Gamay, the rest fermented traditionally. It makes perfect sense to grow Gamay in Hawkes Bay; when the cooler regions of Marlborough and Central Otago on the south island grow Pinot Noir so well, the warmth slightly further north on the north island ripens Gamay perfectly. If you enjoy the more serious expressions of Beaujolais from cult producers like Jean Foillard and Julien Sunier, you'll love this too.
