Jack’s GSM 2021

62% Grenache | 22% Shiraz |16% Mourvèdre | Basket Pressed

The 2021 GSM is estate grown fruit from our Moppa Hill and Greenock Vineyards. 62% Grenache soured from the old vines at Moppa, Shiraz from our Home block at Greenock and 16% Mourvèdre from our hillside vineyard at Moppa.  Each variety adds its own characteristics to the blend – Grenache aromatic red fruits and spice, Shiraz dark fruits and mid palate weight.  Mourvèdre completes the balance by adding structure and complexity to the finish.

Handpicked fruit, 100% de-stemmed this vintage and whole berry to fermenter.  The three grape components all fermented separately, Grenache like the Mourvedre is hand plunged in small open top fermenters.  The Shiraz ferment was managed mostly with two pump overs per day.  26 days on skins for Grenache, 24 days for the Mourvedre and 15 days for the Shiraz.  The wine was then drained to oak barrels and skins were hand dug out of the fermenters into the basket press.

Appearance:  Medium ruby core with medium crimson rim.

Aroma:  Cranberry, cherry and raspberry fruits are dominant, there is also plenty of underlying mixed spice.  There are earth notes synonymous with GSM along with some florals and hints of pepper.

Palate:  Medium bodied with a delicious flow of cranberry fruit and spice onto the palate followed by classic earthy tones.  It’s round through the  mid palate with balanced acidity.  The tannins are velvety and help to support the fruit and acid on the finish.

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’.
