2018 Three Piece GSM

Vineyard: Single vineyard estate grown (Avon Brae) is located in the High Eden region of Eden Valley/Barossa.

Season: Generous late winter rains replenished the soil profile followed into Spring. Consistent warm summer days with cool nights allowed for perfect slow ripening, maximising Riesling bunch flavour. The vintage will be long remembered as an exceptional one.

Wine making: Blend of three varieties, Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro (GSM)

Appearance: Medium red

Aroma/Bouquet: Bursting ripe raspberries, plums, Turkish delight, musk confectionery with lifted pepper and spice including nuances of clove.

Palate: Luscious red berries are obvious with flavours of flint and soft washed slate. A medium bodied wine that demands Mediterranean cuisine.

Food Pairing: Grilled Lamb cutlets with lashings of rosemary and olive oil, Margarita pizza, King George Whiting fillets wrapped in Pancetta and garden fresh broad beans. Slightly chill in warmer climates.
