Rising 2018 Gamay
There is some pretty inspired winemaking technique going on here, the smoke and stem overtones to violets and dark cherry are intense but work seamlessly on the nose. The palate has the crunch of acidity which can be expected of a well-executed Gamay, but an attractive broadness of fruit spaning the red berry spectrum and layered with undergrowth and stem induced spice.
Unique wines, unique styles. From a special place. From the rolling elevations of their home at Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills on the edge of Australia's Yarra Valley, small parcels of exceptional fruit are selected for a new collection of wines. Inspired by the quiet achievements of Sticks, Rising is a new expression of the Yarra Valley.
