Blue Grouse 2014 Gamay Rosé

December 11, 2015 § 1 Comment

It’Blue Grouse Gamay Roses coming up on Turkey season and I have penchant for wine styles that are not your run of the mill, so I thought I would give this Vancouver Island made wine a run for its money… and am I glad I did.

Gamay Noir is one of my guilty pleasures. Most famously it is the grape of Beaujolais, but in general I prefer the expressions found right here in BC. Sultry cherry, and smokey grape with layers of spice and a usually a silky spice driven finish. But here in front of me in the middle of a nasty wind storm was a rosé of Gamay.

Rosé is a favourite pairing for Turkey and the truth be told I like the idea of pairing my local raised Turkey, locally sourced veggies and locally sourced family, with a locally grown and crafted wine.

The nose is filled with ripe cranberry and strawberry and the palate is crisp and alive. The finish is refreshing, juicy and offers a kiss of spice, which makes Mom’s gravy and my wife’s stuffing sing.

Price ~ $14.99-$16.99

Score ~ 8.2 Over Delivers

Assuming I have time I will be making the drive to the Winery to grab some or you can find it in your local private liquor store.
