Okanagan Crush Pad, home to Narrative and Haywire wines, is at the vanguard of the region’s winemaking movement, producing bottles such as their Gamay Noir.
One of B.C. best loved Gamay wines, this bottle invites food with extra richness afforded by the generous 2015 vintage. As always at Haywire, handling is gentle and winemaking is hands-off: open top fermentation, manual punch-downs and a brief stint in aged French Oak have led to a Gamay Noir rich with bright red fruit — strawberry, raspberry and cherry — with gentle tannins. A truly refreshing red, excellent paired with a rustic juicy braise, beef dip or local B.C. cheese plate.
