Winemaker Notes
We picked the grapes when they were perfectly ripe and destemmed them gently into small fermenters. The Varieties were co-fermented and extra Syrah skins were added to increase the colour, power, and structure of the wine. During the on-skin fermentation the cap was plunged 2-4 times a day and pressed near sugar dryness using our traditional basket press. The was aged in older French oak barrels to 15 months. We added a small amount of additional Syrah and Mourvedre to the final blend just prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes
The 2013 GSM is quite dark in colour for this type of blend. The nose is vibrant and complex with aromas of red cherry, dark plum, orange blossom, grilled almond, pepper, and vanilla pod. The palate is soft, round, and powerful with attractive flavours of dark plum, blackberry, apricot, pepper, and vanilla.

Vineyard Notes
Simply phenomenal dirt is what it took to craft this wine. Most of the grapes came from Blind Creek Vineyards in Cawston - the site is hot and has amazing soil, which results in rip and powerful Southern Rhone grapes. The balance of the grapes came from our Road 9 and Castle Vineyards, both of which consistently produce excellent Syrah. On all three sites the yields were kept to less than 3 tons per acre and an extensive green harvest was done. Deficit irrigation was applied to limit the vigour of the vine and deliver concentrated flavours and aromas in the grapes.
