2014 Noble Red GSM

Small family concern from Heathcote Vic., noble indeed. Jubey red fruits from the Grenache juxtaposed against the earthy savoury Mourvèdre. Very much an Australian style of GSM with a glowing warmth to keep things ticking. Drink with protein preferably of the BBQ style

Raspberry and earth with a touch of spice to round things out, this is a very approachable and enjoyable GSM in the richer and riper spectrum.  While initially this was quite savoury, I left half a bottle on the bench over a couple of days and the richness of the wine came through and enveloped the alcohol that was evident on day one making for a more harmonious experience.

Although I noted its match for BBQ meats in my earlier comments, with some air time this is a nice mid weight red wine that would make great friends with a rich slow cooked winter casserole (chicken or red meats).
