Beaujolais Nouveau is made from Gamay grapes from the Beaujolais region. It is the law in France that these grapes must be hand-harvested for the wine (we know, we take our wine seriously!) The special wine is fermented for just a few weeks until it goes on sale at 12.01 am on the third Thursday of November.
The odd feature of the Beaujolais Nouveau compared to other wines is that it does not benefit from ageing and tastes most delicious soon after production.
The tasting notes of this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau are expectedly fruit-forward with cherry, blueberry and raspberry jam being the top notes with more subtle hints of anise and tobacco.
Available from 21st November to 5th December
Bottle $40 | Glass $10
The assertive flavour profile of the goat cheese, olive tapenade and sun dried tomatoes balance well the sweet and strong berry and stone fruit notes of the Beaujolais Nouveau. Salty prosciutto rounds out the flavour profile to create a more complex experience.
