THE CLUB  GSM 2012 James Halliday 92 Points and "special value"

Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre – the three classic Rhone Valley grapes that form the “Famous Club” of  the other ‘Regional Hero’ of the Barossa Valley: the GSM-blend. It varies each vintage, but is generally around 50%G : 45%Sh : 5%M.

 

Style:

THE CLUB  GSM is a succulent, medium-bodied, easy-drinking and very food-friendly wine. Soft Grenache, fleshier Shiraz and more structured robust Mourvèdre. The varieties ripen at different times over a period of several weeks. The grapes, partly hand-picked, are fermented separately and put in barrel. The final blend is assembled around 6 months later after extensive tastings, then barrel aged for about another 6 months. Cellar up to 8 years.

 

Tasting Notes:

Fresh and harmonious marriage of fruit and spices (thyme and rosemary), red and black berries and plums. The fine tannins are well integrated, long finish.

 

Food Pairings:

Mediterranean cuisine, all pasta, barbeques, roasts - or just enjoy it with your “CLUB of Friends”!
