About This Wine
Popular Wines Made From Gamay Varietal Grapes:
- Gamay Noir
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.
Acidity: Medium to high
Age: Most should be drunk while young and fruity, but the best wines can improve with age.

Dad drinks a bottle of wine a day.
My dad of 94-1/2 years old drinks a bottle of wine a day. I have been making the Gamay kits for him every 4 weeks to keep him supplied. We picked Gamay since it is the closest to making a Beaujolais. I have been keeping a bottle or two back from each batch to age, and so far they are still ageing since it has been less than a year. I did try a bottle from a batch I made for myself about 16 weeks ago and it improves with age, The day of bottling we drink the last partial bottle filled with dinner that night, and I have found the product very consistent. The Cabernet Sauvignon is a little smoother when young than the Gamay, but they are very similar. I stopped taking the s.g. at the beginning and end after the 4th kit I made. I follow the steps on the day it has to be done [dates are entered in my phone to remind me on the day I start] and after 4 weeks the bottles are washed and the wine is filled. I just use black stick on labels that use erasable marker, and I put on the name of the wine and the date bottled. I love these crafted series wine kits.
i just got it few days back but it looks great!!!
