JUNTO GSM 2016

Nose: Bright and lifted wine with the pretty aromatics of Grenache to the fore - red fruits and raspberries and crushed herbs. Complexity comes through in the form of anise, spice and gamey notes from the Mataro, while the Shiraz brings structure and a core of plush fruit

Palate: deliciously crunchy, racy wine that beautifully balances its savoury and textural elements and finishes clean and tangy. Just the right mix of structure, flavour and interest. This is a savoury, sinewy wine first and foremost though flavours of graphite, woodsmoke, black cherry and fennel mean that there's plenty else going on. Those strains of spicy tannin though; those fistfuls of smoked twigs and spices; they really set the scene. It twirls and twists through the mouth like it's mapping out genes. A light-but-exquisite red wine
