2017 GSM TASTING NOTES
Vintage: 2017 Varieties: Grenache/ Shiraz/Mouvedre
Region: McLaren Vale
A very popular blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mouvedre.The Grenache and Mouvedre were sourced from local growers and the Shiraz was grown on Ivybrook Farm.
The grapes from all the vineyards are handpicked and fermented in small 1 tonne fermenters where they are hand plunged 2-3 times daily. No yeast is added so it undergoes a “wild ferment”, maceration on skins occurring for 7-10 days
The Grenache provides lighter, red fruit flavours as well as perfume and spice. The Shiraz contributes richer fruit and structure, while the Mouvedre brings in the earthy and spicy elements and texture to the wine.
