Geoff Merrill 2009 Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre

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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
