Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz are three of the great red grape varieties that are cornerstone to the Barossa’s red winemaking pedigree. A traditional style using classic Barossa grape varieties, we looked for structure and integration of flavours. Grenache provides the sumptuous savoury, spice and fragrance, and a gentle earthiness and leather with age. Mataro contributes deeper gamier flavours and flesh to the palate whilst Shiraz acts as a strong foundation to the blend, giving colour and structure.

Dark cherry with flecks of ruby. Generous and lifted nose brimming with fruits of the forest, sweet spice and a touch of earth. Well balanced palate showing both notes of fresh fruit (plums + raspberry) as well as savoury smoked peat and spice tones. Fine line of acidity, firm, grippy tannins and a moreish finish.

Fruit for our Motley Bunch GMS is sourced from three locations around the Barossa. Majority of the Grenache comes from Merv John’s property in Light Pass, while the Mataro is sourced from the Schutz family acreage in Stonewell and the Shiraz from our very own Resurrection Vineyard in Ebenezer. Proportionally: Grenache 38%, Mataro 32%, Shiraz 30%.

To maintain the delicate integrity of the Grenache fruit this juice was aged in older French Puncheons, where the larger size of the barrel (500 litres) results in less oak influence. The Shiraz and Mataro juice was aged in a combination of new (10%) and older French Hogsheads (300 litres)

Food matching wise, this is the perfect accompaniment to Lamb koftas with flatbread and herbed yoghurt & beetroot puree.

"Aromas of blueberry and some cooler, spicy, peppery tones, as well as blueberry, smoked meat and gun smoke. The palate has red plums and some earthy tones, too. There’s a core of deep blueberries and purple cherries and a succulently long and fleshy finish. Drink or hold."
91 Points - James Suckling

"Matured in French puncheons and hogsheads for 12 months. I’d say pretty good bunch, neatly counterbalancing the red and purple fruits with a gently savoury finish. Snappy colour, too."
