Shottesbrooke 2014 GSM - McLaren Vale

REWARDING GSM out of a vintage that rattled
some McLaren Vale nerves – enjoy this
one with a wild mushroom risotto.

ONE TO NOTE: SOUTH AUSTRALIA's Shottesbrooke used the best premium fruit from selected sites around its home McLaren Vale and also the Adelaide Hills for a now-available 2014 GSM that's rewarding buying at just $20.

With 56% Grenache, 26% Shiraz and 18% Mataro, this is drop that actually came out of a vintage that rattled the nerves of local winemakers with a couple of major heatwaves in January, but which thankfully were followed by good rain that tempered any potential damage.

With a ripe and juicy palate of upfront dark berries and aniseed, plus a hint of savory, earthy spice, it's a great drop to enjoy with a wild mushroom risotto.
