“The colour is youthful and vibrant and pretty much what you’d expect for a young wine! The aroma is so expressive showing tomato vine, smoked meats, raspberry, guava, blackberry and cloves with charcoal, olive and dense clay earth filling the glass. Once in the mouth you experience so much more. Concentrated ripe pomegranate, fleshy fruit, spice, firm acidity and a lengthy tannic grip. I love this wine, can’t you tell?!” - Scott Heidrich, Winemaker.

The GSM blend is an 'Australian-ised' version of the French Cotes du Rhone blend. This blend is all about youth, freshness, spice and complexity with very little oak influence.

The name 'rocky ox' comes from my daughter. She is an 'Earth Ox' in the Chinese Astrological calendar, so I thought it was fitting as Grenache can show some fantastic earthiness as it develops.

The individual ferments were all hand plunged and basket-pressed in order to release their full aroma and flavour potential. Only one vineyard batch of Grenache and Mataro went into this blend, along with a barrel selection of spicy Shiraz to complement the style. After ferment, the wines were matured in 5 year old French oak puncheons and hogsheads, and were blended after about 8 months maturation then returned to oak to maximise the fruit intensity while providing the subtle complexities that natural barrel aging brings. After a further 4 months maturation it was racked and bottled (unfiltered) with a screw cap closure to preserve the intensity and freshness of this exciting wine. 100% McLaren Vale. Grenache 60%, Shiraz 30%, Mataro 10%

“This intriguingly spicy, faintly iodiney blend muscled its way into my top three for its bright supple-textured fruit, because I’ve never heard of it, and because I have a suspicion that it’s one of the best-value wines in the tasting. 95 Points. Drink 2016 - 2019”
