2016 Revolver No.3 McLaren Vale GSM

Revolver wines are small batch wines made by a dynamic young winemaker Daniel Zuzolo who works closely with our own Mike Farmilo.

This classic blend beautifully combines spice and cherry from the Grenache; structure and perfume from the Shiraz (Syrah); and tannins with a savoury twang from the Mataro (Mouvedre).

Background

After a very warm December from late January the temperatures became milder during the day and cooler at night accompanied by regular rainfall events. All good conditions for flavour development. All red wine grapes ripened relatively slowly and the wines from that vintage generally show good fruit and soft tannins.

Made entirely from hand picked fruit, this is a blend of 63% Grenache (Willunga), 32% Shiraz and 5% Mataro (both sourced from Sellicks Hill). The winemaking comprised using open natural fermenters, 15% whole bunch ferment, 18 months maturation in French barriques...a lot of care, years of experience and effort has been used to make this small batch.

Colour
Red garnet with a purple hue.

Nose
Red plum and warmth on the nose. Grenache provides darker, savoury, earthy characters; Shiraz, typical red berry and plum, and the Mataro, spice and black pepper all combined with subtle vanillan oak.

Structure / Palate
Full bodied with a rich palate. The palate demonstrates all of the hallmarks of this world famous blend. This wine is packed with flavours of red berry and spice. Dry yet soft tannins lead to a long finish perfect for food.

This is a beautifully structured GSM with typically firm varietal tannins yet the balance for immediate drinkability. Try it with lamb, other red meats and pasta dishes.
