Dicey Bannockburn Central Otago Gamay (2020)

From a cold growing season, the ruby hued (not entirely clear) 2020 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 11 months in old oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fragrant and savoury, it is highly characterful, with good body, fresh acidity and plummy, spicy, slightly nutty flavours, finely textured and rich.
