2012 Rolling Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre

rolling redRolling Wines are part of the Cumulus stable with fruit sourced from vineyards ranging between 557 to 600 metres in altitude. This is the first release of their GSM – 48% Grenache, 40% Shiraz and 12% Mourvèdre with the Grenache and Mourvèdre co-fermented and the Shiraz blended at a later stage.

Quite floral with rose petals and violets but it’s the sweet raspberry coulis that takes centre stage. Dried herbs, spice and slightly cranberry accented acidity provides balance. It’s juicy with no oak influence that I can detect. Some brambly fruits underneath and a rasp of tannin to complete the picture. Simple but fair drinking nonetheless. 88 Good
