GSM is a blend that was originally used in some wines from the Southern Rhine but has been gaining popularity in the New World wine regions. The three grapes work together to each deliver the unique components of the wine. Grenache offers up warmth and fruitiness, Shiraz contributes full-bodied black fruits, pepper and tannins while Mourvdre contributes elegance, structure and acidity.
Tasting Notes: Crimson color with aromas of ripe berries and subtle spice on the nose. On the palate, sweet plum and black fruit with a hint of tobacco.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this food friendly blend with hearty meat dishes, lamb or herbed pork tenderloin.
Oak Intensity: Heavy
The 12 liters of varietal juice makes 6 gallons, providing approximately 30 bottles of wine.
