2017 BackVintage Old Vine McLaren Vale/ Barossa Grenache Shiraz
Nick Bulleid MW Tasting Notes
Background

The GSM blend – Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre – has become a modern classic, enjoyed for its generous red fruit and spice flavours and supple, approachable tannins. In making this wine, we were able to gain the rich flavours and fine tannins we wanted without the ‘M’.

Old-vine Barossa Grenache brought fragrance, softness and very fine tannins, while the McLaren Vale Grenache component was richer and more full bodied.

The McLaren Vale Shiraz brought dark berry, plum and spice flavours, welcome oak complexity and firmer tannins.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Medium red with a purple edge

Nose
Strawberry and dark fruit aromas, with distinct spices and a hint of vanilla from oak.

Structure / Palate
Medium to full bodied, yet fleshy and supple. Sweet berry and spice flavours. Overall soft, with a mild cut of tannin on the finish.
The wine finishes with fine tannins and good length.

The wine comes in the tradition of a GSM - fully ready for immediate enjoyment and with the flexibility for most foods. Enjoy it now and into 2021.
Recently launched at the Northbridge Rotary Fireworks (where BackVintage is a sponsor), everyone who tried it enjoyed the wine.

Try it with lamb...it is a great accompaniment with some humble, yet rich spaghetti bolognese.
