2021 Uva Non Grata Gamay


Uva Non Grata (Latin for ‘ungrateful grapes’) refers to the historical downgrading of Gamay while Pinot Noir became the ascendant of the two grapes.

For centuries maligned, mistreated and misunderstood, Gamay was outlawed by Philip the Bold in 1395. Some vignerons rebelled, hiding forbidden Gamay vines amongst ‘noble’ Pinot Noir. Bottled without appellation and without rules!

Tasting Note: Aroma of violets, crunchy damson fruit and gentle youthful tannins. This wine became everybody’s favourite over the summer months. Primary fruit aromas and the delicious soft red berry flavours of gorgeous Gamay at its best. You'll love it!
