A great by the glass list; and a lovely Punt Road Gamay 2016


I'd plant gamay, I think.  There are few local versions, and those that are there, can enjoy prices that would surprise some from Beaujolais.  I got a few quizzical looks when over there recently.  This is a good gamay from Punt Road in the Yarra Valley, reminding of a Chiroubles tasted the other day (reviewed here).  Light cherry aromatics, and a savoury palate with some fruit sweetness and a hint of grip.  Oh, and the wine list.  Local, interesting and a range of varieties.  What's not to like?  (Region: Yarra Valley, Rating: Good, Drink: now)
