‘We think this is probably the best The Holy Trinity we have made. Some years the stars align and 2018 was one of those years’,Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.
A brilliant and vibrant ruby red colour, there is a playful combination to the nose of candied apple, raspberry jubes, frangipane and lemon curd. In the background you see notes of cinnamon and clove.
Medium to full bodied palate, fresh and vibrant with enough tannin to shape the wine. Acidity carries the wine through to a clean, slightly mineral and lengthy finish. Lovely hints of fresh raspberries and cinnamon linger on the palate.
Even ripening periods allowed the grapes on the Barossa Valley floor to reach optimal ripeness during what was a very steady harvest in 2018.
Heat and dryness toward the end of the harvest created excellent conditions for the late-ripening Grenache and Mourvèdre.

95 POINTS TYSON STELZER"Near-equal parts grenach/shiraz/mourvèdre, with a tiny dash of cabernet. Matured 16 months in seasoned puncheons and hogsheads. This aptly named Barossa GSM has ascended magnificently in recent vintages, attaining new heights of spice, detail and intrigue. Exotic and fragrant, it presumably enjoys all the lift and jubilance of whole-bunch inclusion, stimulating crunchy red berry fruits and rhubarb. A long finish embodies poise and life, riding rails of firm, fine tannins and vibrant acid line. A rare GSM for the cellar."
