Case: 6 bottles

The Yangarra GSM is a careful blending of grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre. Bright and perfumed with chewy earth and spice characters, this is a fine example of what an evenly spread palate tastes like. A wine with a backbone of old bush vine Grenache planted in the 1940’s. This wine will continue to evolve with cellaring, but can also be enjoyed in its youth alongside barbequed meats.

  • The grapes from each block were hand-picked, de-stemmed and mechanically
    sorted. Whole berries were then transferred to open-top fermenters. We cold
    soaked the fermentation tanks for 5 days until the onset of wild fermentation,
    utilising the yeasts that naturally come in with the grapes from the vineyard.
    The open fermenters underwent a careful regime of plunging and drain and
    returns. The wine was then sent to older French oak after 10 days and kept
    on the yeast lees for approximately 10 months prior to blending. The wine
    received no fining, just filtration.

    A 60/22/18% blend, a lovely wine from a lovely vintage. It’s not an ounce over medium-bodied, but it articulates the place, varieties and the year with utmost clarity. Fine tannins are stitched through the scarlet taffetta of the perfectly pitched palate.
