2017 Domaine Simha Sanskrit Gamay Noir

Huon Valley, TAS

Exquisite Gamay release from a fascinating Tasmanian producer.


One of the most amazing Gamays we've made - the perfume and spice is just mental!

Nav Singh, Winemaker

About The Wine

Nav Singh has nailed this release of his Huon Valley Gamay Noir.

The 2017 vintage with its long and cool ripening period suited Gamay down to the ground. It's produced a more vivacious and floral style of Gamay, hemmed in by fine fingers of tannin.

Produced with minimal intervention from the hand of the winemaker, this is one of the most interesting and sought-after releases in the eclectic Domaine Simha range.

Only 50 dozen made.

About Domaine Simha

Nav Singh is the man behind the Domaine Simha label. Along with his wife Louise, Nav has built a unique stable of Tasmanian wines under the Domaine Simha banner. 

He draws from multiple philosophies when crafting his range. The winemaking is mostly traditional, using low amounts of additives, fermenting in clay amphora, experimenting with varying levels of whole bunch and skin contact. The fruit he sources from the Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley regions, is all picked according to the lunar calendar ala biodynamics.

At Domaine Simha, new project is always in the works. Nav is never afraid to take a chance or try something new.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Red berries and green herb, silky palate and great spice, tannin super fine and elegant. Feels premium. Tight and fine, coiled like a spring. The fruit so supple and savoury tannins throughout. Very beautiful. Very elegant. - Different Drop Wine Team
