2013 Bush Vine Shiraz Grenache Mourvèdre

“Named after the beautiful old Bush Vine Grenache vineyard owned by mates of mine in McLaren Vale. The Grenache component in this wine is hand picked to best preserve this glorious old vineyard. We have been taking fruit from this block for many years and it’s one of our favourites.” – Geoff Merrill


Wine Reviews:

94 points – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

“A gorgeous wine showing gloriously attractive aromas of dark fruit, cedar, smoked game, dark chocolate and mushroom on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is plump and fleshy. The wine offers terrific fruit power and generosity, brilliantly structured by fine, chalky tannins, finishing impressively long and seductive.5 stars.

93 points – Australian Wine Showcase Magazine

92 points – Ray Jordan (The West Australian)

“Extra time in bottle has added another dimension into this fleshy, opulent blend. Lush chocolate and spicy, savoury plum, with a lick of cedary oak. Dense mid palate and a long finish. Pop a bottle or two in the cellar to see how it ages.”
