A classic blend from JoieFarm of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Gamay. It’s a unique Canadian wine with a nose of black cherry cane cola, plums, raspberries and a full range of savoury spices. It is juicy on the palate with some tannic structure to go with black cherry, black licorice, pepper and spice. Ripe and delicious.

Ruby-purple colour; cedary, spicy, cherry pit nose with a light oak note; medium-bodied, dry, cherry and cranberry flavours with a touch of tannin on the finish. Well balanced and firm

Passe-tout-grains is a Burgundian term for a blend of pinot noir and gamay. This is a dry red with delicate plum aromas and flavours with lemon, smoke and basil tones. It is very dry, midweight and well balanced with good to very good length. Try with Bbq sausages. Best 2016 to 2018. Tasted August 2016.
