2014 Barossa GSM
Estate Family VineyardsBack to All
Grenache has been an integral variety in the Barossa since the early days of grape growing in the region. Traditionally used for fortified wines, Grenache was very much battered by the vine pull scheme of the 1970s. Today, it is easy to make the case that Grenache blended with its brethren of Shiraz and Mourvedre are the up and coming stars of the Barossa. Partnered alongside the best Shiraz, Grenache blends can make a significant one-two combination punch to ensure the world sits up and listens!

…distinctly mid-weight but the payoffs are elegance and nuance. This flows and slips and creates its own little word of flavour and feel; berries, cream and spices the conduits. A piece of Barossa craft.

Smells quite a bit like sarsaparilla, raspberries, whiff of violet, some spice and coal. Medium bodied, and certainly a lighter fresher style, light dusting of tannin, slightly nippy acidity, but lively enough, and a spicy savoury saline finish of good length. Certainly not over-done.
