With Grant Burge's well established ‘The Holy Trinity’ GSM having a renowned international reputation they have produced a lighter softer style of GSM which is predominantly Grenache based. Still utilising the best of their ‘old vine Grenache’ the wine hasn’t undergone extensive maceration on skins like its bigger brother ‘The Holy Trinity’ and is more approachable in its youth.
The vibrant and juicy Grenache (56%) is perfectly complemented with supple, soft Shiraz (30%) and Mourvèdre (14%) – a very enticing wine style. The 2012 vintage was an exceptional vintage in the Barossa, where good winter rains laid the foundation for a perfect spring. Mild and dry conditions along with cool nights throughout vintage produced near perfect ripening conditions and the resulting wines have exceptional fruit flavour profiles.

Winery Tasting Notes
Vivid purple in colour.
The wine displays lifted aromas of red fruits, lavender, mocha and dark chocolate.
The palate is rich and immediately engaging, with soft flavours of cherry fruit, plum and liquorice all perfectly interwoven with savoury, silky tannins and a long, supple finish.
Although drinking well now this wine will develop further complexity with careful cellaring for 5-7 years.
The refined structure makes this wine suitable for a variety of dishes including chicken casserole, barbecued meats and roast pork.
