Rosemount Estate Red Rhone Blend Mclaren Vale Gsm 2001
Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre have been grown in McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley throughout the regions' winemaking history. Together, these varieties also represent a traditional combination prevalent in the South of France, particularly the Southern Rhone Valley, where similar climatic conditions exist. In Australia, the combination of these three varieties in conjunction with contemporary winemaking expertise has heralded a new chapter in the story of modern Australian wine. First released from the 1994 vintage, GSM has become a benchmark for its style in Australia. Selected from low yielding and old vine sources to bring together premium parcels, the final blend consists of 48% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 7% Mourvedre. Vineyard Region McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek Vintage Conditions McLaren Vale had a wet winter and the rain, which continued into spring, promoted strong growth in the vines. Good November weather provided perfect conditions for flowering. McLaren Vale had its hottest summer since 1905. The warm weather provided ideal ripening conditions and a high quality crop with excellent intensity of flavour. Grape Variety Grenache, Shiraz (Syrah), Mourvedre Maturation Fermentation was carried out in small, traditional open fermenters and modern vinomatics. Matured for a full 18 months in new and one year old American oak barrels.
Rosemount Estate's vision began in the Hunter Valley region of Australia. Though much has changed at the estate over the years, the original commitment to quality has remained pivotal to the success of the now world-famous winery that is Rosemount Estate.
