Gamay’s inimitable bright ruby hue teems with bright cherry, raspberries, and dark spices on the nose, as you might expect. The palate’s judicious concentration, roundness and spice, however, set this apart from more common examples of Gamay while allowing the grape to remain its harmonious, versatile, earthy and red-fruited self. The lingering finish introduces some slightly smoky notes as well as a little saline minerality. An amazing expression of Gamay!
100% Gamay sourced from a single vineyard aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.
Gönc winery is a family tradition going back to 1936, when Peter Gönc’s great grandfather built their first wine cellar and planted the vineyard around it in the small town of Dobrovnik in Slovenia. After World War II, his grandfather moved to the city Ptuj where he started working in the Ptujska Klet, or Ptuj wine cellar, as a cellar cleaner and worked his way up to head winemaker and CEO of the oldest winery in Slovenia, now known as Pullus.
