Tasting Notes

A small release light red wine, with rich varietal characteristics. This light-bodied, fruity red has tart flavours of cherries and raspberries, making it the ideal match for spicy dishes. Hand selected grapes are fermented as whole bunches on the skins before undergoing a second pressing, ensuring high fruity aromas and taste, along with a striking colour.

 ‘Great colour, bright and cheerful, with red and blue fruit in abundance and a touch of flint and smoke on the nose. Vibrant morello cherry, spice and earth. Refreshing, with decent acidity, and low tannins. A delicious, fun wine.’  IEWA 2023 Judges Tasting Notes

Winemaker Notes

Here at Biddenden we are rather unique in our use of Gamay, as we are one of the only English vineyards to grow this variety. To make our limited edition Gamay we require an ‘Indian summer’. Since planting this variety in 1985, we have produced just six vintages: 2003, 2009, 2011, 2018, 2020 and 2022.


“For me this was the highlight of the whole competition, not just because its light, juicy, fruity style was so enjoyable, but because it points to a style that I think many more English winemakers should be aiming for. Super fun and friendly wine. I will buy lots of this wine this summer.”  IEWA Chairman

Available to purchase in our vineyard shop from Saturday 10th June 2023
