Arnot Roberts Gamay 2020


You might think the Sierra Nevada foothills are an odd spot to grow Gamay: but in fact you have warm, sunny days, cool nights, very cold winters and to top it off granitic soils! Sound a little like Beaujolais? It is, but the Gamay out here also is distinctly Californian, with a hint of a sparkly gold-rush fever in the background. Think Morgon with just a bit more flesh and plenty of that electric acidity and dark minerality that made us fall in love with Cru Beaujolais.
