Its evocative aromatics, composed palate and earthy bitter chocolate finish make for an utterly delicious gamay.
About The Wine
Vaughn Dell established a small plot of close-planted Gamay vines at their Piper's River home, which he tended like his own personal garden, and made into fun and sassy reds.
So, of course, his wife Linda, doing her first vintage after Vaughn's sad passing, decided to the opposite style, making a more serious classic interpretation, making the wine as if it were Pinot Noir.
And it is a fantastic tribute to her husband, a wine of serious class and depth, darker-fruited than other Tassie Gamays, and very much deserving of a place on your dinner table.
Sinapius is a premium boutique Tasmanian winery started by two young, passionate winemakers.
The couple, Vaughn Dell & Linda Morice, purchased the site when they were only 24-years-old and chose to plant their vines in the Burgundian fashion opting for high-density planting and low yielding crops. Their small labour of love has budded into one of Tasmania's most exciting viticultural projects.
Their wines are of extremely high quality, made in small amounts and showcase their unique patch of dirt with transparency, purity and power.
Since Vaughn's tragic passing Linda has carried on their dream, expanding the range and solidifying their standing as one of Tasmania's best producers.
