GSM BLEND - GSM blended wines consist of Grenache – Syrah – Mourvedre. Hailing from the southern Rhone Valley in France, GSM wines have been eagerly embraced by New World producers. Rich and full bodied, Grenache contributes spice and red fruit whilst Syrah gives structure and dark fruits. Underpinning this is the tannins, colour and long finish offered by the Mourvedre.
"The silky texture and elgance of this wine is first-rate, and the bold flavours make it perfect for enjoying with lamb."
RHONE - The Rhone Valley is located in south-east France and follows the course of the Rhone river from Lyon to the Rhone Delta. The northern region’s granite-blessed slopes and continental climate are perfect for Syrah based reds and production of the Viognier, Rousanne and Marsanne white varieties. The flatter topography, sandy soils warmer all-year-round Mediterranean climate produces rich Grenache and Mourvedre grapes that are blended with Syrah to create the famous GSM Blend.
