2021 Soul Garden GSM
Varietal: A delicate yet silky southern Rhonish blend of 85% Grenache, 8% Shiraz and 7% Mataro.
Region: Clare Valley
Colour: Brick red in colour with bright crimson hues.
Nose: Dark cherries, red fruits, and kitchen spices.
Palate: The flavours of dark cherries, red fruits, and kitchen spices dominate the palate with subtle French oak influences rounding out this very appealing wine.
Winemaking: Crafted from three different vineyard sites; an old block of grenache in Seven hill planted back in 1955, the Shiraz from a twenty-five-year-old dry grown vineyard in Watervale and a small parcel of dry farmed Mataro from the hills on the eastern side of Penwortham. A delicate yet silky southern Rhonish blend. Made in a fresh Joven style, which generally means that the wine has been made to be enjoyed whilst young and lively. All parcels were vinified and kept separate throughout the twelve-month maturation period until final assemblage and bottling occurred in June 2022.
Cellaring: Can be enjoyed now whilst young and fresh or will continue to improve for a further ten years.
Food Pairing Suggestion: Enjoy with lighter foods, cheeses, charcuterie, and ploughman’s platters or simply on its own
