Three varieties very well suited to McLaren Vale. Bush Vine Grenache provides aromatic lift and bright red fruit characters. Shiraz lends powdery tannin, spice and mid-palate weight, while Mourvèdre rounds out the blend and contributes balance and structure. This wine is a fun and challenging puzzle to assemble each vintage and will age gracefully up to a decade after release.
“The predecessor was quite possibly the finest GSM yet tasted on these shores, where the moniker is oft used. The generous percentage of mourvèdre (20%), the key to the firmly articulated latticework that transcends the jubey, soft norm. As Rhône-like as it gets. Grenache (55%), the kirsch, sandalwood and white pepper. Shiraz (25%), the florals and salumi. Old vines, propitious siting and the confidence to extract with an MO of savoury complexity and strident tannins that ready one for the fifth glass rather than one sip.”
