gamay in a leather jacket

Gamay, Loire Valley, France

A sexed up Gamay with a husky, throaty voice that really does things to you. You met La Pause at an art gallery & fell head over heels in lust after finding out they’ve published three volumes of experimental poetry that is actually, like,really good. Now you’re all, “Is it crazy that I want to tell La Pause I love them on our third date?” Yes, it is, but we totally get it: we’re in love with La Pause too. 40 ye. . .

Now you’re all, “Is it crazy that I want to tell La Pause I love them on our third date?” Yes, it is, but we totally get it: we’re in love with La Pause too. 40 year old Gamay vines are grown on clay & limestone soil, elevage takes place for around eight months in neutral vats prior to bottling without filtration, resulting in a pure & straightforward expression of grape & terroir. It’s sort of like Loire Valley Gamay started palling around with Northern Rhône Syrah, managing to stay entirely true to itself while concurrently picking up a few of Syrah’s vocal tics & mannerisms subconsciously: it’s a smidge meaner than your average Gamay, Gamay in a beat up vintage leather jacket, though of course it’s still a sweetheart underneath, with a piping hot mainline of red fruit energy. Spiced plum, ziploc bag of Craisins, scratch & sniff strawberry. But wait there’s more! Bouquet of dried violets! Beet juice reduction! Kitten’s tongue tannins! And last but not least, BIG limestone energy like stealing a rock from a vineyard and sniffing it alone in your hotel room later that night.

We don't know if you've heard this, but Canada is a truly WILD place to import wine. Each province is it's own country with super strict rules. For ages, so much of the very best natural wine never made it into the province. That is changing in such an exciting way. We started our own import company to bring you some of our very favourite wines from around the world at the sharpest prices - this allows us to travel, fall in love with a wine, and bring right to your doorstep without a middle person. Put simply, as the importer, we shave one layer off the supply chain. We offer these sweet wholesale discounts when you bundle. From 1, 3 to 6 packs you'll find serious savings. The GWI sticker - Grape Witch Imports - means not only that we strongly stand behind the producer, it also means you won't find a better deal anywhere else in town. It also allows us to source many wines just for the shop - you'll find Ontario exclusives marked GWIE - Grape Witch Import Exclusive.
