GSM with spice
2014 Schwarz Wine Co GSM, Barossa Valley, AUD $26-$28
This fine blend of grenache, shiraz and mourvedre has a spicy, savoury bouquet featuring ironstone and earthy mineral notes. It’s intense and focused on the tongue, with lush fruit, cool spices and a high note of crushed peppercorns. (Screwcap)
