Wine Spectator Top 100 Wine of 2005!
"Rich, dense and focused..."
The GSM has a deep crimson appearance and displays intense berry fruit aromas with a deep underlying smokey spice. Savoury oak is also evident, underlying the primary fruit characters. On the palate, the wine displays a fine depth of deep, spicy fruit flavour, rich in cinnamon and liquorice characters with a background of dusty, soft ripe tannins. There is a rich, core of dark fruit and a long finish indicative of a high quality wine with the capacity to age up to ten more years. The wine comprises 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.
