Limited Release Gamay 2023

Brown Brothers

Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

The spirit of experimentation lives on through four generations of the Brown Family who are constantly trialling unique and emerging varieties including the King Valley Gamay. Planted at our Banksdale vineyard in 2011, the Gamay vines enjoy the high-altitude growing conditions to produce fresh and lively wine. The 2023 Gamay is a soft, juicy wine that reveals delightful notes of red berries, cherry and subtle pepper spice. Vibrant and textural, it is best enjoyed young. Try it chilled with Asian-inspired dishes.

Food Pairings

The Gamay style is quite versatile when it comes to food. It is light enough to try with quail wrapped in prosciutto with stir fried vegetables. Or try it with a selection of cold meats, such as salami and aged Jamon.

  • 1x Silver

The wine was made utilising whole berry fermentation to enhance red berry aromas. To add a layer of complexity the Gamay was aged in older French oak. The 2023 Gamay was bottled with an alcohol of 12.5%.
