About This Wine

Popular Wines Made From Gamay Varietal Grapes:

These wine produced from the Gamay grape tends to exhibit characteristics that are very similar to that of Pinot Noir. Gamay is a light-bodied, fruity red with tart flavors of cherries and raspberries and even banana. The banana flavor is the result of something called carbonic maceration, but that’s for a geekier post.

Taste: Aromas of red fruit, banana and a hint of spice, give way to prominent flavors of cherry, raspberry and strawberry.

Tannin: Low

Acidity: Medium to high

Age: Most should be drunk while young and fruity, but the best wines can improve with age.

Fruit Forward Beaujolais Style Wine

I bought this kit in November of 2021. Following the kit's directions, I ended it up with a fruit forward wine that was not sweet based on its final specific gravity of 1.000 but would better be described as off dry. The light bodied wine is just what I had hoped it would become and appeals as an after dinner wine or a wine for relaxing on the lanai. I let it age one year before its initial serving.
