Division Village-L'Avoiron Rose of Gamay Noir 2019
This Portland, Oregon based winery was founded in 2010 and was inspired by the wineries of the Loire, Beaujolais, Burgundy and the Northern Rhone and the balanced wines made though minimal manipulation found there. The winemakers have a passion to work with well-farmed terroir expressive vineyards, many of which are organic and/or Biodynamic, celebrating the varietals the winemakers loves to drink.
This Rose of Gamay Noir is beautiful in the glass, a rose-tinged, pale but just ripe strawberry hue. The primary aromatics are watermelon flesh and just ripe strawberry. The wine has excellent energy, the complete aromatics, chalky minerality and fleshy weight means drink up now or wait for the honey-ed notes that will come with time.
