Powerful but elegant. The Ironstone Pressings Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre never fails to surprise and delight. A dense and dark appearance, with a crimson purple hue, give promise of a complex yet evolving wine. Initially shy on the nose, a few swirls let the wine open up and present a beautiful bouquet of strawberries, ripe plum, and fresh cherries. The more we explore, we find some violets and thyme adding further intrigue. On the palate there is an amazing fusion of red and black fruits that come together seamlessly. Plums, mulberries, blood orange and an assortment of red berries. There’s some freshness thanks to a little green capsicum and some Herbes de Prevence. Silky, rounded tannins bring that element of elegance that we were promised. This is a delightful McLaren Vale GSM that can be enjoyed early in life but will cellar beautifully and evolve exceptionally into the future.
