Winemaker - Marnie Roberts
Grape Variety - 50% Grenache, 34% Shiraz, 16% Mataro
Region - 100% Clare Valley
Colour - Deep ruby red.
Bouquet - Inspired by those delectable, food friendly blends from the south of France we have crafted a fresh and aromatic GSM that greets the drinker with savoury earthy aromas and succulent strawberries followed by hints of rosehip and fresh herbs.
Palate - The true craft of the winemaker is the intricate art of blending. This wine is a prime expression of that artistic talent; the weaving together of various elements to enhance and complement each other resulting in a finished product far greater than the individual components.
A cracker wine, fresh and juicy possessing crunchy tannins and savoury fresh mushroom character. The mid palate is full of floral red-currant fruit, with some choc-mint and fresh leather on the finish. This wine is unfiltered and matured for 10 months in older oak to preserve maximum primary fruit lift and intensity.
An accessible wine of surprising length and complexity – totally slurpable (yes it IS a word).
General - Watervale Shiraz lends a floral / violet dimension to this wine, complemented by the spiciness of the Grenache from our 1950’s planted bushvines.
Serve With - It’s juiciness and drinkability would see it pair perfectly with rustic pork & veal meatballs with fresh tomato and herb sauce.
