Winemaker's Notes

The wine was fermented in stainless steel, then transferred to seasoned French and American barrels for 12 months. About 20% of the wine remained in stainless steel for the duration of its maturation. The components for the Stonehorse GSM are chosen for their riper fruity qualities and softer texture and mouth feel.

45% Grenache, 44% Shiraz and Mourvedre from estate vineyards that range from 20-45 years in aged. The wine is matured for 12 months in seasoned French oak.

Entry displays mulberries, blackberries and plum fruit characters with fine tannin and tasty acidity. As the wine moves through the palate, the mouth feel widens and becomes quite savory. The palate is rich and smooth with good length. The aftertaste is very Mourvedre with a strong flavor of dark chocolate. Grenache contributes soft aromatics and flavors. Shiraz adds structure and a bit of spice, and the Mourvedre provides breadth and depth.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth and velvety, with dusky tobacco nuances to the ripe blackberry and spice flavors, gliding nicely on a sleek frame. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2016. 10,000 cases made"

"The 2006 Stonehorse GSM is composed of 45% Grenache, 44% Shiraz, and 11% Mourvedre and was aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an attractive nose of cedar, spice box, earth notes, and black cherry. This leads to a forward, easygoing wine with savory red and blue fruit flavors, plenty of spice, and a silky finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next eight years. "

"Bright ruby. Deep blackberry and mulberry aromas are complicated by sexy Asian spices and cola. Deeply concentrated dark berry flavors verge on liqueur-like but are given verve by tangy minerality, which builds with air. Velvety in texture, with no obvious tannins and good back-end tang. Offers an attractive blend of richness and vivacity."
