Wooden Valley Winery2011 White Gamay, Estate
White Gamay has become the standard blush for Wooden Valley Winery and the flavors of summer support this direction. With a definite residual sugar, there is great balancing acidity to keep any summer party fresh. This is a definite poolside or picnic blush set to bring forward many a smile. Flavors of rich, sweet and ripe strawberry explode with resounding presence from the first sip. Background light berry and some melon add to complexity. The wine can easily be paired with light summer cuisine and do great against spicey Asian fare. On a hot day, add a cube or two of ice. This is a honest fun wine, simply enjoy.
