Description

Winemaker's Notes:

Color, nose and palate: ?Deep, developing brick red. Savoury, dusty aromas with hints of rose petal and nutmeg. The palate is as savoury and dusty as the aromas suggest. The rose petal and herbal characters harmonize with the plum and cherry like flavours. Boasts vibrant strawberry and raspberry, with black cherry also evident. Look for hints of milk chocolate and pepper in this elegant and generous red. Fine gentle tannins complement a warmly, comforting lingering finish.

Food recommendation: A wonderful barbeque wine, also pairs well with roast lamb.

GSM – Grenache, Sangiovese, Mourvedre

When you come to the cellar door, GSM is the first red you will try and it will engage and enliven your palate. The GSM is a judicious yet unorthodox blend with Grenache as the main attraction and supporting roles played by Sangiovese and Mataro [Mourvedre]. Given the particular nature of our rocky soils, old vines and organic cultivation methods, we believe this makes the best and most interesting blend. It looks like a simple choice, but it takes a lot of thinking and tasting to get it right. After all, the most important part of any blend is what you leave out.

Varietals: ??70% Grenache, 15% Sangiovese, 15% Mourvedre

Vintage Notes: ?A welcome wet autumn and winter in 2008 was a great foundation for the tremendous conditions our vines were in for the spring/summer growing period. The fruit, although still extremely low in quantity, enjoyed a relatively mild summer before picking.

Winemaking: ?The wine is made using the full range of traditional winemaking techniques. Several small parcels of fruit are fermented in open tanks at 20-30 degrees with whole bunches and stalks included. Minimal oak influence allows the wine to fully express the rich range of spicy fruit aromas of the Grenache grape, together with a savoury middle palate of Sangiovese, and a long dry finish of Mourvedre.
