Carefully selected from vineyards across the Clare Valley.

Vintage Conditions

A dry yet cooler vintage, 2019 has delivered smaller yields of highly flavoured fruit. The lower-than-average rainfall between December and harvest created a few challenges. There were some extreme weather conditions during the growing season, including the lowest temperature recorded in spring and the highest ever temperature in summer, but the grapes showed great resilience. Red grape varieties thrived under these dry and reasonably cool conditions.

Winemaking

Each variety is harvested separately at optimum flavour ripeness and vinified in small open fermenters, where time honoured techniques of hand plunging, délestage and basket pressing are used to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin from the skins. Once pressed, each batch is matured for fourteen months in seasoned French oak before the final cuvee’ is assembled.

"The palate wields fine tannins with impressive style, elevating the peppery aromatics, the punchy maraschino cherry notes, not to mention the discreet savouriness. The choc-vanillin oak is particularly nicely placed, intuitive almost, simply going harmoniously with the wine. We used to treat GSM as simply a nice everyday kind of wine. No more."

  • Appearance

    Deep garnet red with a purple hue.

  • Nose

    An expected complex basket of blackberry, plums and spice with wafts of tanned leather and fresh lavender.

  • Palate

    The palate is concentrated and seamless with red plums, cherries and blackberries all colliding together. A savoury, spicy backbone of subtle smoke and tar wafts through silky, plush tannins to a long, generous, and expressive finish. A wine that continues to evolve in the glass as it airs.
