Jack’s GSM 2015

Open Top Fermented | Basket Pressed
56% Grenache | 26% Shiraz | 18% Mourvedré

2015 is the third release of the Jack’s GSM, with a blend of 56% Old Vine Grenache, 26% Shiraz and 18% 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 grapes were de-stemmed and 60% berries crushed while 40% whole berries remained 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 for 14 days.  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.

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’.
