Dark cherry red in colour. Fragrant aromas of cherries and roses are highlighted with hints of chocolate. The lively, medium weight palate is filled with flavours of bright summer berries. The luscious Grenache is complemented and structurally enhanced by the darker berry flavours and ripe tannins of the Shiraz and Mourvèdre, offering immediate appeal, whilst with age the wine will develop an attractive, savoury complexity.

More depth, with high quality ripe, fragrant fruit supported by supple oak. The palate is quite taut initially, but the fruit excels on a finish that has excellent balance. Medium term cellaring an option, or drink with a rich pork ragout. Brilliant!
A nose of cherries, cola and violets with a super soft palate showing good weight of lifted fruit.
Sweet fruit up front but it finishes dry and spicey. Good value to be had here. Raspberry, straps of liquorice, those sweet roasted spice notes and a smoky-clovey note. Plushness to the mid-palate but it hasn’t been pushed too far. Easy to recommend.
Simple, soft, good times red with everything in the right place. Raspberry liquorice, mint, choc-berry, saline mineral notes and clove spice. All of this in a squishy, slurpy frame. Easy as. Not changing the world here but a really neat and tidy red wine that ticks the boxes for overdelivering for the bucks.
This is a delicious drink for the money spent. A classic Rhone prototype, the GSM acronym has become part of the Australian wine lexicon. For better, and often, for worse. Yet this sits in the right full-bodied socket, between ample red- and dark-fruit flavours, a smattering of briar and herb and well-appointed tannins. The point, I suppose, is that it does not try too hard. It simply delivers.
