2008 Kleine Zalze Gamay Noir 85 Points

2008 Kleine Zalze Coastal Region Gamay Noir 13.5% 85 Points

Pale ruby cherry red with good clarity and brilliance.

Earthy, cherry raspberry, complex and winey, has “Beaujolais texture, charm and elegance, the fruit richness shows more of a Tarrango grape profile…remisniscent of warm growing condition.

Bright fresh acid, light bodied and refreshing spicy texture on aftertaste. True and honest Gamay Noir style. Great lunch wine served chilled in summer.

By far the finest South African example of Gamay Noir, bottle under screw cap for freshness and cleanliness.

Great lunch wine served chilled in summer, with your favourite assiette of Charcuteries,
