Esk Valley Artisanal Collection Hawke's Bay Gamay Noir (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4*) has a Pinot Noir-ish appeal. Bright ruby, it is a medium to full-bodied, vibrantly fruity red, with berryish, slightly nutty flavours, showing some savoury complexity, balanced acidity and gentle tannins. A youthful, supple red, it's still unfolding; best drinking mid-2022+.
