The 2003 The Ironstone Pressings GSM is a gorgeous blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Shiraz, and 5% Mourvedre. It explodes from the glass with notes of Provencal herbs, black cherries, cassis, pepper, licorice, and incense. A wine of great intensity.

International Wine Cellar ReviewRated 91+Opaque ruby. Brooding, pungent red and dark berry aromas are complicated by cured tobacco, sandalwood and Indian spices. Broad and rich, with deep blackcurrant and cherry compote flavors and a firm structure that makes itself apparent with aeration. The grenache is in the background today, and the wine finishes with serious grip and sneaky persistence. I'd give this some cellar time.

WA 92 Pts. - The 2003 The Ironstone Pressings GSM is a gorgeous blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Shiraz, and 5% Mourvedre. It explodes from the glass with notes of Provencal herbs, black cherries, cassis, pepper, licorice, and incense. A wine of great intensity. Rated 90+


Winemaker's Notes:

In its youth, d’Arenberg’s Ironstone Pressings has a deep, dark plum purple colour matched by just as intense black cherry, raspberry, spice, cedar, dark chocolate, liquorice, tobacco, mixed spice and brooding ripe blackberry aromas. Mulberry, ripe plum and fresh pepper spice dominate the rich full bodied palate before a long, intense, rolling, dark gritty cherry tannin finish. After quite some time in bottle the intense colour fruit aromas and dusty gripping tannins tone down, the colour moving towards brown ruby red. Eventually the Grenache and Shiraz blossom as rich, sweet, violet like scents, with spicy, cedary and tobacco based aromas before malty sweet dark chocolate flavours and crunchy, chewy textured black olive, spicy ginger and long fleshy textures. Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: Serve at room temperature 16 – 24 ?C. now or in the next 3- 25 years with rich, full-flavoured foods like lamb shanks, pork fillets, goulashes, Russian cabbage dishes and game, even with warm chicken soups and cous cous, classic roast lamb and rump steaks. Also good with veal shanks and oxtail. Serve after decanting as an older wine.
