Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
A sultry wine with indulgent layers of complexity, Barossa Vines GMS combines 50% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre and 17% Shiraz, from fruit grown on Grant's own vineyards and those of respected growers around the Barossa.
Grant Burge proudly displays the Barossa name on each bottle as an assurance of regional integrity. From an excellent growing season which allowed maximum development of varietal characters and concentration of flavours in the Barossa, and the varieties were picked at optimum ripeness to ensure maximum flavour and intensity. After crushing and de-stemming, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks on skins for six to seven days, to bring out the maximum flavour. The rack and return method was used three times daily to keep freshness and aid extraction of colour. The three components of this wine were handled separately and then expertly blended after the fermentation and malolactic fermentation processes.
The Barossa Vines GMS is vibrant purple in colour which is perfectly suited to this vibrant wine! A stunning complex young red wine that exudes the powerful characteristics of all three varietals in the blend. On the nose lifted raspberry fruit with a hint of rose petal and violets together with Carnival like aromas of fairyfloss, toffee apple, chocolate and caramel. The palate is fleshy and round; complemented by soft grape tannins and rich spices, layers of complexity and enticing figure. A lingering finish allows you to continue enjoying the wine well after it has gone. A luscious red designed to drink young and fresh, this GSM is well suited to your favourite gourmet pizza, olives and antipasti, or a spicy tomato based pasta.
