John Gehrig a fourth-generation winemaker, established the vineyard & winery on the banks of the King River, Oxley in 1976. John’s son Ross has taken on the challenge of guiding the next winemaking generation of Gehrig’s to craft fine wines. Ross is obsessed with producing the best grapes to produce wines of distinction that will pay homage to this iconic Northeast Victorian winery.
Originating in the French Beaujolais area this is an earlier ripening, abundantly producing grape. Gamay is a classic French light aromatic red. Ross has spent many vintages working in Beaujolais on this rare varietal.
With fresh raspberry and red fruit the John Gehrig Gamay 2019 is fruity and light-bodied with light acidity and a soft tannin.
Lovely for those who enjoy a lighter red, it’s also a great warm weather red and can be served slightly chilled.
It will pair well with rich, spicy and salty foods as well as light seafood, creamy cheeses or pastas.
