Ravensworth Charlie Foxtrot Gamay 2021Regular price $39.00
Bryan Martin's first vintages of anything since fire ravaged his vineyard last year, the Murumbateman vineyards are still slwoly coming back online but Bryan's partnerships in the broader region are still strong. The Charlie-Foxtrot Gamay is Bryan's fourth vintage playing with Gamay and I would suggest his best. Gamay is not new to Australia but its not common either. In his own way I think Bryan has paid homage to Beaujolais.
Sourced from a vineyard in Tumbarumba, the Charlie-Foxtrot Gamay is produced in ridiculously small amounts, so get in quick as we expect this to walk out the door.
This years Gamay is a little edgy and more along the lines of traditional Beaujolais, it is bloody lovely and if you like Gamay it is a treat. Bryan has finished the wine without fining or filtration which I think adds to the style of winemaking.
Be careful, one glass will not be enough and you might find yourself racing others to the bottom of the bottle!
