Three varieties very well suited to the McLaren Vale region in South Australia. Bush Vine Grenache provides aromatic lift and bright red fruit characters. Shiraz lends powdery tannin, spice and mid-palate weight, while Mourvèdre rounds out the blend and contributes balance and structure. This wine is a fun and challenging puzzle to assemble each vintage and will age gracefully up to a decade after release.

Serve this in buckets! What a beauty! GSMs done well are cracking drinks and this release is worth bashing down the door for. A delicious fusion of fruit, savoury delight and earthiness, this GSM is absolutely humming. Raspberries, baked blueberries and mulberries are the beating heart of this wine. There is a fabulous tempo and vibe about its carry as it moves and sways through the mouth with ease. The palate is blanketed by generous medium-bodied fruit with fine spices clinging to the edges and tingling long. An earthy undertow courtesy of the Mourvedre is measured and harmonious. Each part of the blend works in unison rather than seeking the limelight and that's precisely why I can't get enough of it. A clever wine that has been made and blended exceptionally well. Great stuff, and yes, bash the door down. Drink to: 2029+; Price: $35.00; Rating: 95 Points; QWine

Not as ferrous or savoury as the magnificent 2020. Veritable value all the same. A multitude of sub-regional sources, Blewitt Springs and Clarendon amidst. A meld of partial carbonic, a dollop of whole bunches and extended time on skins (to 30 days) for the better fruit. The oak, used small format. Licorice, sweet kirsch, thyme and rosemary sprigs. A waft of eucalyptus, drying and terse, marks the finish. A final spurt of sweetness offers respite and strident length. Drink to: 2028; Price: $35.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 93 Points & Special Value; James Halliday Weekend Australian
