Do you love light-bodied red wine? If you answered yes, then you must try Gamay Noir! Often over-shadowed by it’s cousin Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir is a beautiful wine offering flowery, fruity and earthy notes. It has high acidity and low tannins, which make it a very easy wine to pair foods. Gamay Noir is grown primarily in Beaujolais France but cool climate wine regions, like Canada, are producing some delicious Gamay wines. One of my favourites is the Angel’s Gate Gamay Noir from Ontario Canada. Sitting at the foothills of the Niagara Escarpment in the Beamsville Bench, Angel’s Gate Winery produces beautiful wines that are delicate, well balanced and structured. And their Gamay Noir is no exception! The Angel’s Gate Gamay Noir has lovely red berry flavours with a hint of light floral and smoky finish. Pair this wine with a wide variety of foods like grilled meats and roasts; vegetarian dishes; and cheese and charcuterie plates. You can find the Angel’s Gate Gamay Noir in the VQA Ontario section of the LCBO for only $14.95 – great value! If you’re not in Ontario, the Angel’s Gate Gamay Noir can also be purchased through the wineries online store. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend saying yes way to Gamay!
