At the end of Dandelion Vineyard's old-vine garden path there is a historic Menagerie of three grape varieties, adjoining blocks of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. This GSM is a true expression of the terrior of Gomersal in the Barossa. Wild cherries, mulberries, cinnamon and Asian spice dominate in an opulent blend enveloped in soft velvety tannins.

Colour

Nose

The nose is a summer pudding of lifted red fruits, berries and a hit of cinnamon and Asian spice. Wild cherries, Damson plums, mulberries and an impressive structure balanced by spicy oak.

Palate

The palate is opulent; intense red berries balanced by soft velvety tannins and supple oak with great balance from the acid reknown in Barossa Grenache.

Background

After hand-picking selected bunches of our Menagerie field blend in mid March our winemaker Elena Brooks let the whole bunches ferment together in open top fermenters with ambient or other people's yeasts. The wine was hand plunged for 14 days, before basket pressing into old French Oak barriques, to then mature for a further 12 months in the same oak, before bottling without fining or filtration to capture the essence of our vinous Menagerie of the Barossa. This vintage of our Menagerie of the Barossa has a high level of natural acidity, and is bone dry, it is m?énage a trois that makes wine truly of its time and place, a wish come true and a looking glass, if you will, and although ready to drink immediately it will also reward cellaring and decanting.
