SG321 SG321 Crémant d’Alsace Cuvée Julien, Dopff au Moulin NV

For a taste of what Alsace can do [in sparkling wine, this] is an excellent starting point… the method of production is exactly the same as Champagne. The difference? Apart from the fact that this is much cheaper, it's a bit fruitier in a peachy sort of way with rather softer acidity. And it's lovely. - Helen Savage

NZ8051 NZ8051 Te Mata Estate Vineyards Hawkes Bay Gamay Noir 2014

There are just 7.3 hectares of gamay noir in New Zealand. And the producer who has led the way with his variety so far has been Te Mata, in Hawke’s Bay. This is their gamay, and it’s pretty good. It is made from 1995 plantings of a superior clone of gamay noir à jus blanc that Te Mata was responsible for introducing into New Zealand. And it’s a single-vineyard wine from the Woodthorpe vineyard, which is on a north-facing terrace. Winemaking is 50% carbonic maceration and 50% normal red wine fermentation, and it is matured for three months in older French oak. This isn’t the world’s greatest ever gamay, but it is really good and delivers pleasure. Floral and very fruity with juicy cherry and plum fruit. Hints of earth in the background as well as tar. Opens up very nicely with time to take on better texture with sweet cherry fruit. This has a bit of stony, grainy minerality. Real interest and finesse with drinkability: decant this before drinking. 90/100 - Jamie Goode
