Rippon Gamay 2020


Easily our favourite Gamay of 2021, taking deliciousness to a whole new level. Vibrant and so alive with dark pastille fruits, lavender, violet, chocolate, Morello cherry and fruitcake spice. Round and voluminous with a chalky/powdery mouthfeel and a mash of raspberry, blackberry, blueberry to bring it all home. Quite unbelievable and utterly captivating. Waters Wine Co

Here it is: lovingly grown, wild fermented, barrel matured. No nutrients, no filtering or fining of any kind, the barest whisper of sulphur, a full skin, carbonic maceration Gamay Noir. It’s completely alive and quite beautiful. As much as we note that schist’s compression and foliated structure can issue wines of precision and detail, here schist’s refractive, luminous nature shines a direct, unadulterated light onto Gamay’s own primary fruit and spice.
