This blend great Aussie secret and to get one with bottle age. Smells absolutely in the zone with mellow regional aromas of cooked plum and subtle clove like Grandmothers homemade plum sauce with black liquorice in in the background. It’s warm and ripe plumy and earthy all at the same time.
Soft plump and obvious it’s all middle palate with plum sauce on the finish, great BBQ or with hoisin sauce and a dish of pork.

Winery Tasting Notes
The appearance is deep garnet red with long viscous legs and dark cherry red hues.
The bouquet is rich and intense with a complex array of ripe fruit characters mingling with perfumed spice, toasty oak and polished timber. The hallmark of truly Grand Barossa wines is the multi dimensional elements that continue to unfold as it opens up in the glass.
The opening palate is packed with dark berries and earthy spice which gradually evolves as complex secondary characters come forward. Gamey, savoury characters are followed by chocolate, mocha and hints of licorice spice. The abundance of flavour is supported by an equally robust tannin and acid structure with good weight and generous mouth-feel. It’s a timeless wine of generous proportion, with great depth and length of palate.
This is a genuine example of the richness and intensity of this traditional Barossa blend, it is best enjoyed with equally flavoursome dishes like aged, thick cut rib eye or fillet steak and it’s ideal as an after dinner match with a selection of tasty cheeses, nuts and dried fruits.
Peter Jorgensen’s Premium Reserve wines are selected for longevity and depth of character. This Grand Barossa GSM, a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre will stand the test of time, age for many years to come and continue to develop chocolate and mocha flavours. With over 6 years age it has already become perfectly rounded and balanced.
