The 'Ironstone Pressings' G.S.M.
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 Herbs de Provence. 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.
While enjoyable in youth, this wine will reach its full potential with bottle age up to at least 20 years. The considerable structure and depth will ensure that the fruit characters will develop over time revealing more complexity and providing immense interest. This wine is best stored in an environment free of direct sunlight and with consistent temperatures between 10°C and 15°C.
