With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
French inspired and with the lightness of touch that those words imply, this GSM is fruity, spicy and earthy all at once. Elegant but no shortage of flavour.
Item Code: ITM6574
A wonderfully food-friendly style, made without any oak. Young and all about the fruit – bright red berries, cherry and violet combine with notes of violet and dried spice to create a balanced and utterly moreish wine. While drinking beautifully now, this Grenache will continue to reward with carefully cellaring.
Item Code: ITM4120
This medium-bodied blend displays aromas of violet, ripe red cherry and raspberry with subtle hints of savoury oak. The palate is elegant with red fruit characters balanced by fine tannins and soft oak nuances.
Item Code: ITM6466
"A super blend of grenache 50%, mourvedre 28%, with splashes of shiraz, cinsaut, roussanne and counoise for added interest and flavour. It's so lively, aromas emanating from a baker's kitchen with cardamom, ginger and star anise, floral too. The palate is lighter framed, juicy with supple tannins but it's not simple, there's just a joyous ease to this with tangy acidity to close. Delicious." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM21598
A pretty nose with notes of raspberry and spice. The palate is full of juicy red fruits with savoury undertones and masculine tannins. Poise and power all rolled into one wine.
Item Code: ITM6042
"Roses, sage, ripe raspberry, peanuts, liquorice and chocolate. Medium bodied, but incredible density and concentration of flavour – essence of Grenache delivered with class – suede stroke of tannin, freshness of acidity nestled deep inside a core of savoury and plump fruit, and a finish that soars and carries long. Incredible. I’m thinking about the great Grenache wines of the world while I taste this, and surely this is one of them." Gary Walsh
