Jack’s GSM 2012
Open Top Fermented | Basket Pressed
59% Grenache | 32% Shiraz | 9% Mourvédre
2012 is the inaugural release of the Jack’s GSM, with a blend of 70% Old Vine Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 10% Mourvédre. Each variety adds its own characteristics to the blend – Grenache an aromatic spicy lift, Shiraz body and weight while Mourvédre adds complexity.
The GSM was blended shortly before maturation in French oak puncheons for 14 months. It is up to the winemakers palate to determine the quantity of each variety to create the perfect blend and wine style.
