External Reviews for Oxford Landing Gsm
G (Grenache 56%) S (Shiraz 33%) M (Mourvedre 11%) is a Rhone-style blend from Australia. Oxford Landing produces a excellent value in this style of wine. On the nose there is sweet raspberry and spice. On the finish, the wine follows through with great pepper and plum flavors. This wine exudes a lot of depth and complexity for under $10. Pick it up before it's all gone.
The 2006 Grenache (50%) - Shiraz (40%) - Mourvedre (10%) offers up a generous quantity of cherry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied and user-friendly, it will provide pleasure over the next 2-3 years.

Individual selected parcels of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre are fermented in static potters under warm temperature conditions. The Grenache parcels are also given post ferment maceration on skins to allow maximum color and flavor extraction. Careful blending of the final components results in a wine which showcases the special synergy that can be achieved with these three classic varieties.
Medium red. Red berry and chocolate on the nose, along with a faint whiff of cured meat. Juicy red berry flavors are gently lifted by soft acidity. Easygoing, pliant, fruit-driven wine with no apparent tannins; this is even better with a light chill.
The 2005 GSM possesses herbal, peppery, red cherry, spice, and earthy notes, light tannin, and ripe, round fruit. Drink it over the next 12-18 months. This wine is an exceptional bargain.
From Australian producer Yalumba comes this affordable line of wines under the Oxford Landing label. The 2004 GSM (great stuff, mate) is a blast. Blackberry, blueberry, cherry and plum flavors are soft and juicy. Powerful and almost scary it's so good, the GSM (Godzilla, Sasquatch, Mothra) also offers spicy notes that give it, dare I say it, an almost EUROPEAN complexity. The GSM (goal-oriented strategic marketing) does not taste mass-produced, but it is priced that way. For six bucks I say "GSM" ("gimme some more").
