in the cellar : Our Gamay continues to be a success in its consistency to provide a fruity, easily accessible red wine. Its unique characteristics, versatile composition, drinkability and scarcity as a varietal all assist in ensuring the Verdun Interlude Gamay Noir has an entrenched position on South Africas wine-map.

Berries were tasted on the vine to ascertain the stage at which the mulberry flavours were most prominent, only then did harvesting commence. The berries were handled sympathetically in the cellar to promote softness and upfront fruit. Secondary fermentation was then induced. At blending 7.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7.5% Merlot was added to complement the final product.
