Jack’s GSM 2016
Open Top Fermented | Basket Pressed
53% Grenache | 25% Shiraz | 22% Mourvédre
The 2016 Jack’s GSM is a blend of 53% Old Vine Grenache, 25% Shiraz and 22% Mourvédre. Each variety adds its own characteristics to the blend – Grenache aromatic red fruits and spice, Shiraz body and weight while Mourvédre adds structure and complexity.
The Shiraz & Mourvédre grapes were 100% de-stemmed while 22% of the Grenache remained as whole bunches before being transferred into open top fermenters. Fermentation was kept on the cooler side and hand plunged twice per day with a rack and return to chillers for cooling only. After fermentation the wine was then drained to oak barrels and skins were hand shoveled out of the fermenters into the basket press.

Appearance: Ruby core with crimson rim.
Aroma: A delicious mix of berries – raspberry, blueberry and blackberry dominate at first. Followed closely by aniseed, herbs and mixed spices with floral nuances of violet.
Palate: Immensely drinkable with soft acidity. Red fruits carry from the nose to the palate with earthy, savoury flavours. Mourvédre shines through adding back palate length and aniseed spice.
