Jack’s GSM 2018

62% Grenache | 25% Shiraz | 13% Mourvédre.

The 2018 GSM is estate grown fruit from the Moppa Hill and Greenock Vineyards.  62% Grenache soured from an old vine vineyard at Moppa, 23% Shiraz from Greenock along with 2% Shiraz from Moppa and 13% dry grown Mourvédre from Moppa.  Each variety adds its own characteristics to the blend – Grenache aromatic red fruits and spice, Shiraz dark fruits and mid palate weight.  Mourvédre completes the balance by adding structure and complexity to the finish.

Handpicked fruit 100% de-stemmed this vintage.  Grenache cold soaked 4 days before wild yeast allowed to start ferment.  Cultured yeast is added after 6 degrees of alcohol obtained.  Shiraz fermented with cultured yeast; ferment kept on the cooler side and pumped over three times per day.  Mourvédre like the Grenache is hand plunged in small open top fermemters.  After 21 days on skins for the Grenache & Mourvédre, Shiraz 12 days, the wine was then drained to oak barrels and skins were hand dug out of the fermenters into the basket press.

Show Tasting Notes

Appearance:  Ruby core with crimson rim.

Aroma:  Ripe plum and rhubarb, gently spiced with cinnamon and cloves.

Palate:   Neither lean and bunchy, nor hot and confected, it’s defined by perfect balance and goose-down softness.  Medium bodied as the palate develops the theme of plums and poached rhubarb dusted with cinnamon spice and a faint exotic camphor note.  Tannins are veiled and silky; you only notice them if you go looking.

Wine is heat sensitive. During the warmer months we reserve the right to hold orders in instances of extreme heat, until there is a clear path of non-extreme temperatures between us and you. All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
