About The Wine
A new Gamay on the Australian scene from Tasmanian winemaker James Broinowski.
Tasmania is a great place to grow Gamay. The slow, drawn-out ripening season allows the Gamay flavours to develop more fully, making for a more complex, savoury style of Gamay.
This is bottled unfined and unfiltered, a bit of whole bunch leanding a smoky, slightly spicy component to the wine.
As with all of the wines in the Small Island range, this is only made in small quantities and won't be available for long.
About Small Island Wines
Small Island Wines is a mirco-batch Tasmanian wine company founded by James Broinowski in 2015 after raising the money to launch his brand via a successful crowd-funding campaign through Kickstarter.
James focuses his time on producing Pinot Noir with regional accents from around Tasmania, with a little Rosé and Riesling being made as well.
The wines have received quite a lot of press in only a short amount of time. James Halliday wrote, "It looks very much like a potential acorn to oak story, for the quality of the wines is seriously good." after trying only the first release from 2015.
Since then, James hasn't looked back.
