This is the first chance Vaughn has had to play with the Gamay he and Linda have planted on their gorgeous Tasmanian vineyard.
For its first run, with not much juice to play with, Vaughn has blended it together with a little Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier for a bright and fragrant, early drinking red which is absolutely delightful.
Only 100 dozen made.
What It Tastes Like
Juicy cherries and strawberry, a little rhubarb and some herbs. It’s so good to drink. Slips down dangerously easily. Fine fluffy tannins and juicy boysenberried acidity. So fresh. So vibrant. Dig in.
Sinapius 2016 Esmè Rouge
100% Estate Grown. 50% Gamay, 40% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier. The Gamay for this wine is the newest player in our vineyard, making its inaugural debut. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier were sourced from one of our east facing blocks, originally planted in 1998. The Gamay underwent wild yeast whole cluster carbonic maceration for 3 weeks, without any addition of sulfur. The Pinot Noir/Meunier was whole berry, wild yeast fermented, again without sulfur, for 4 weeks. Matured in old barriques and puncheon, and bottled without fining and filtration in March 2017. Minimal sulfur added just prior to bottling.
The wine opens with an intensely perfumed nose, showing wild strawberry and redcurrants with hints of violets and wild fennel. Medium bodied, the palette is sweet’n’savoury, full of juicy red fruits, with fine/chalky tannins. This wine has great length and persistence, with a wonderful fine spice and lively acidity to finish.
