You’ve seen our Charlie-Foxtrot Gamay Noir from Tumbarumba, it’s such a great variety, so suited to these continental areas. We planted a little test batch of 400 vines a few years ago and this is the first decent crop. A little carbonic work, some skin time and then just one barrel. We are hoping to have more in the future for a general estate release but this year it’s just these 220l. Again, A great variety
