Product Description

The Longline G.S.M blend is a modern take on a traditional blend combining the purity and spice of Grenache with Shiraz that adds weight and depth to the wine with Mourvedre (or Mataro as it is also known) providing savoury aromatics and flavour to the palate. Grenache is the main act with Shiraz and Mourvedre a fine supporting cast.

Sourced from the Blewitt Springs subregion of McLaren Vale known for producing more elegant and fragrant styles of McLaren Vale red wines. Two dry grown vineyards in tiny parcels have been fermented individually in open fermenters, hand plunged with extended time on skins to produce savory and complex wines with fine structural tannins. Matured in large format seasoned French oak for 8 months prior to blending and bottling in December of 2017.

The colour is brilliant red with purple hue. The bouquet of lifted red fruits of ripe berries and dark plum with subtle notes of fresh herb, spice and savory notes of prosciutto and freshly tilled earth. The palate is soft and moreish with abundant bright red fruits and juicy fruits of blueberry and ripe dark plum. Savory mouth coating fine tannins complete the palate.

Great with freshly made spaghetti with slow cooked lamb shoulder, black olive and tomato sauce.

Enjoy now whilst fresh and bright or for the next 8 years with increased complexity.
