This is one of the most well known and successful GSM blends of Barossa, based on the southern French concept of blending grenache, syrah and mourvedre. And given that Barossa's climate is essentially Mediterranean it's a very good idea. This is medium-full bodied, typically soft yet dense and even with a ripe but reserved nose of mashed plums laced with gentle peppery spice, dried herbs and light wood. It's quite fine although there is a sense it is still youthfully fresh tight; which may also reflect 2011 being one of the coolest vintages in Australia's history. Very good length. Best 2015 to 2019. Score - 90. (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Jan. 31, 2014)
Orangey red in colour, this red boasts a intense nose exuding woody, empyreumatic and fruity aromas. Discover this full-bodied wine expressing refreshing acidity and offering a broad texture and fleshy tannins. It also unveils a intense mouthfeel that leads into a long finish.
Brick red in colour. Elegant nose with vibrant aromas of blueberry, red cherry, raspberry and violet notes. Incredible concentrations of deep cherry, blackberry and plum fruits. Long persistent finish with layers of licorice cinnamon and spice.
Featured in TASTE Magazine, Winter 2012 issue. The Holy Trinity is a Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre blend sourced from old vines and five different vineyards. The wine receives no new oak so the pedigree of fruit is on display and offers vibrant raspberry, rose petal and orange peel aromas with nuances of spice box and underbrush. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of velvety tannins, crisp acid and a long spicy finish. Enjoy it now or keep for a few years.
