Possibly the best red with spicy food anywhere!
A masterful blend of the two varieties, Gamaret and Garanoir. This is quite a unique red.

The Wine


We have Gamaret and Garanoir available on their own, but I find the combination here is even better as the complex body structure of the one complements the fruitiness of the other to make a better wine.

Dry and smooth with very soft tannins and lovely texture in the body. Unique wine, unique grapes and a crowd pleaser.

Perfect with spicy food - one of the best reds in our whole range with a hot curry.

This is a regular feature in the Swiss wine tastings we give across the UK and is always very well received. The smoothness and predominant fruit couple with the tannins to produce a wine that is excellent from the moment the cork is pulled. Not only good with curry but any foods that you might associate with Gamay, such as turkey or chicken.

Flo says of the 2015 (August 2018): A sweet almost vanilla note mingled with nutmeg and plum appear in waves in the aroma of this wine. The wine largely sings of rich fruit balances with mellow tanning to deliver this delicious wine. A crowd pleaser and a conversation starter this wine gives all of the fruitiness of a Gamay with more of a spicy punch. Holds up even against strong flavours such as Thai or Indian curries. 

Why we have it:

It is a crowd pleaser. Balanced and beautiful.

Why you should pick this wine:

You want a flexible red that's a little exotic

What to expect:

fruity, smooth yet suprisingly bold

Serving Suggestions:

Frankly, it can handle anything from chilled to quite a bit too warm. Drink how you like to drink your reds.
Try it with a nice spicy, even outright fiery curry.

Light but intense and very well-made wine!

Gamaret-Garanoir "Expression"

This is a delicious wine, not unlike a good Beaujolais Cru, or even a little reminiscent of a Mondeuse. The main point of interest for us was the interplay between its seeming lightness but its intensity of flavours: dark forest fruit, plum/damson, a whiff of vanilla and some cinnamon. The palate is fresh, but the fruit is ripe, the acidity fresh and the tannins very supple. Highly recommended!
