2013 Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre – Spanish Steps

Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre  (50/40/10%)

The Grenache Shiraz and Mourvedre fruit making up this wine was hand-picked from our and other Geographe vineyards. After crushing, the fruit was cold soaked for three days with the inclusion of some whole bunches to add texture and flavour. On the third day, the fruit was inoculated and as the ferment progessed, it was pumped over and plunged twice daily until dry. Once ferment was finished, it was kept on skins for two days before being soft basket pressed. Once pressed, the wine went into old oak and progressed through malolactic fermentation. It was then cellared for 12 months in old French oak before bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Ruby in colour. Raspberry, cherry and musk on the nose. The palate is fruity and savoury with a hint of oak and has a soft lingering finish. The GSM is a medium bodied wine.
