James Halliday – Crimson with fruit notes of dark cherry, red plum and mulberry with hints of exotic spice, earth, purple flowers, licorice, cola and sarsaparilla. No shortage of ripe juicy plum and cherry fruit on the palate, which sails off showing fine tannin, spiced red and dark fruits and just a slight tweak of heat at the exit. - Dave Brookes

About This Wine

The Vineyard
The Grenache, Shiraz & Mataro components for this wine have been sourced from 3 different vineyards in the North and North Western sub regions of the Barossa Valley. Each vineyard is assessed on its own merits and picked when the berries are packed full of flavour.

The Winemaking
This GSM is a blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Shiraz and 5% Mataro. Each parcel of fruit is fermented and matured separately in the winery. We use traditional techniques of open fermentation, hand pumpovers and basket pressing for each component. The Grenache ferment has around 15% whole bunches & undergoes a wild fermentation to give a complex, savoury character to the wine. Each parcel is then matured separately in seasoned French Oak Hogsheads for 18 months. Finally, the barrels of each component are assessed and then blended prior to bottling without fining or filtration.

Tasting Notes
Medium garnet in colour. A lovely fragrant nose of cherry, strawberry, green peppercorn and spice. The medium bodied palate is packed with bright red fruits, followed by soft tannins and peppery spice, all working in harmony with wonderful texture and mouthfeel. Immediately enjoyable, but will develop beautifully over the medium term

Barossa Valley Wine

The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.

A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.

Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
