This GCM blend is an intense red colour with violet hues.
The nose is very intense, displaying fresh red fruit, such as raspberries and blackcurrants. There are also some earthy notes and a touch of black pepper.
The palate is very expressive. This is a medium-bodied, very refreshing wine, thanks to its high acidity. Packed with fruit, such as cherries, it has gentle tannins and is long in the finish.
Reflecting its origin in Apalta, the hillside location of the vines and its blend of three varieties, Grey GCM is a complex wine.
It is best served at a temperature between 14°C and 17°C to maintain its freshness.
This wine pairs well with sausages, cold cuts, Serrano ham, lamb and pork. It is also delicious enjoyed on its own out-doors.
"This Grey comes from Block 28, planted on stony soils on hillsides in Colchagua's Apalta Valley. The three varieties are harvested and fermented separately and then aged in 2,500-liter foudres for about a year. These three Mediterranean grapes are very much at home in a very warm year like 2020 and offer up a panorama of juicy notes and spicy and herbal flavors in a body that's tense thanks to firm tannins, carignan and mourvèdre doing their thing with their rustic textures for dried meats." - 93/100, Patricio Tapia - Descorchados
