Geoff-Merrill-BottleVARIETAL: Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre
VINTAGE:  2009
REGION:  McLaren Vale

This 2009 GSM is a good example of the opulence you can enjoy in a glass of wine. It shows plenty of spice, dark cherry, blackberry and liquorice.

A blend of Shiraz (50%), Grenache (37%) and Mourvedre (13%), this wine is raring to go now, or you can cellar until 2019. Bright fruit notes are softened by the savoury character of the Grenache, leading on to a beautifully soft finish.  Worth a buy.
