2017 Te Mata Gamay Noir

New Zealand

Halliday - - Global Notes -

Te Mata is one of the

90

south­ern hemi­sphere’s more se­ri­ous gamay pro­duc­ers, hav­ing planted its vine­yards of this Beau­jo­lais grape 20 years ago. It’s punchy with soft red fruits, to­gether with savoury tan­nins and a healthy dose of pep­pery spice in a New World-meet­sBeau­jo­lais kind of way.

A ripe, ro­bust num­ber for sum­mer par­ties or even the Christ­mas turkey.
