Background

"We’ve put a lot of work into developing this variety in the vineyard year on year. The work started early for this wine, with the cellar team pruning the vines in late August 2018. Shoots were thinned again by the team in November. As always with Gamay, a significant fruit thin was also required, and this was carried out at the end of véraison with approximately one third of the crop to the ground. It may sound extreme but it’s necessary for fruit quality. We picked in the second week of March 2019. In the winery, the aim was to take the depth and vibrancy of the fruit we had, and build a wine with the presence and drive we see in great Beaujolais." - Tim Shand, Punt Road

Tasting Note

"The finished wine – no finings and minimally filtered, has fragrant red berries and juniper on the nose and subtle notes of cinnamon and a moreish earthy pepper on the back palate." - Tim Shand, Punt Road
