Gamay Pinot Noir 2022

Innocent Bystander

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

Gamay, it’s bright as a button, juicy as a plum and lip-smackingly delicious when lightly chilled. Take your tongue on a trip to Toulouse, settle down outside a cheeky little bistro and revel in this nouveau delight.

Food Pairings

Goes with spicy pork pizza, Chèvre cendré (goats cheese rolled in ash), crispy duck leg with plum sauce, drinking and dancing on a warm, endless evening.

The 2022 Gamay Pinot Noir blend was made by combining 55% King Valley Gamay with 45% Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. It underwent a 4-day cold soak followed by 5-7 days on skins, with hand plunging in open top fermenters. The Gamay grapes went through whole berry fermentation, while the Pinot Noir had 10% whole bunch fermentation. The wine was briefly matured to retain its bright, fresh flavours, unfined with minimal filtration.

A vibrant and bright red hue, reminiscent of ripe strawberries and juicy plums.


Smells of bright, fresh strawberry, juicy plums and savoury Chinese five spice.


Tastes like a juicy palate of velvety dark fruits, herbal notes and fine, lengthy tannins.

Growing Conditions

2022 saw high rainfall right up until Feb witch was perfect. Then the rain stopped leading to a moderate harvest period perfect for fresh and full fruit flavour.
