Pelee Island Night Glider Gamay Noir Zweigelt 2013 Review

Fri 3, Apr. 15

4.00 overall score

Full Bodied & Fruity Red Wine

This is a unique Pelee Island wine. Gamy Noir is a French grape variety that is solely responsible for the distinctive wines of Beaujolais, while Zweigelt, an Austrian / Hungarian grape variety, is Austria’s most popular red grape.

Deep in colour. The appealing fruitless of Gamay Noir and the distinct spiciness of Zweigelt grapes is blended to yield this full bodied red. Its boysenberry and black current flavours combine with a fine tannic finish and crisp acidity.

BLEND:
48% Ganay Noir
43% Zweigelt
9% Cabernet Franc

ALCOHOL: 12.5%

RESIDUAL SUGAR: 4.8 g/l
SUGAR CODE: (0) Extra Dry

PAIR IT WITH:
Grilled beef and steak or mild to medium flavoured cheeses.

Winemaker’s Notes:
You will find very ripe, plumy-sweet flavours and richness in this wine. It has a rustic character. Some would also call it a bistro style,”elbows- on-the-table” wine. Great with stews, red meat or tomato-based dishes.

Winemaker’s Notes:
One of our fullest reds, with the warmhearted character that Merlot fans enjoy. A good balance of richness, mellow sweet flavours and the essential bite for food.

A wine of dark red colour rounded through oak aging with a hint of black cuurant flavour.

Fri 2, Apr. 10

3.33 overall score

Winemaker’s Notes:
This wine combines the characteristics of dried berry fruit and light cherry notes with fine tannins and vanilla aromas.

The Chambourcin grapes used for this wine were left on the vine until they had reached 20.8 brix, and the Cabernet Franc grapes were harvested at 21.2 brix.

A great wine to be enjoyed with friends around the dinner table.

Pelee Island Gamay Noir Zweigelt 2008 Review

Fri 12, Mar. 10
2 Reviews
0 Reviews
5.00 overall score

Winemaker’s Notes:
This wine has lots of vitality. Quite tangy, dry and refreshing so it really livens the palate and makes you hungry. These grape varieties produce a wine with a bright, cheerful character.

The Gamay Noir grapes were harvested in early October when the brix had reached 21.4 and the Zweigelt in mid-September, when the brix had reached 20. They were then left for four to six days in a temperature-controlled rotor fermenter under partial pressure.

This wine is an excellent companion to red meats and game without sauces.
