Yay Yay for Gamay…

We have been searching for Gamay in the Adelaide Hills since we started Ministry of Clouds, little did we know that our friends the beloved Turnbull family had planted Gamay into their spectacular Charleston site. Lending itself to bright, fragrant, light bodied wines, with nervy acidity, we can’t think of a more suited variety for an Australian summer, seafood, and the evolving pan-Asian cuisine of our home, and our country.


Intense and tightly wound, this wine unfolds with air to show ripe raspberry and gravelly lift, with pink peppercorns, cardamom and mountain herbs below. On the palate this wine is coiled around a persistent acid line, with crunchy dark cranberry, raspberry fruit, gentle wood spice, decaying leaves, and a sherbet-like tannin profile all evident. A wine of delicacy, purity, and succulence.


A pre-dinner platter complete with saucisson, duck rillettes, cornichons and crunchy toasted baguette... or panfried marinated quails served on a bed of fresh spring vegetable risotto... yum!
