Made by the legendary Mike Brown at Gemtree Vineyards, this blend sees Grenache partnered with two of its oldest friends - Shiraz and Mourvedre - in one epic red blend.
Sourced from certified organic and biodynamic McLaren Vale vines, this deliciously rich red has an endless flow of red fruit that is just a delight. Mike believes in timing the pick just right to get both flavour and freshness, favouring older oak to capture the fruit purity, and he's nailed it here.
Previous vintages of this wine have sold like wine hotcakes here at Cracka, and with the 2017 delivering one of the most elegant releases yet, you can bet this is going to be popular!
Sweetly fruited and beautifully aromatic, the bouquet shows raspberry, blackberry, cake spice, olive and cocoa characters with subtle cedar nuances. It is wonderfully weighted and expressed on the palate, displaying ripe fruit intensity and flowing mouthfeel together with seamlessly woven polished tannins. At its best: now to 2024. AU$30.00. April 2018.
Wine Region: More than half of Australia's wines are produced in South Australia, making it the wine capital of the nation with over 200 cellar doors to explore.
Palate: This GSM is soft and elegant, with balanced weight from the front through to the back palate. The tannins are very balanced and there is delicious acidity, notes of cherries, orange blossom and raspberry with hints of spice and earthiness.
