Through the Tasting Glass 'Mad Hatter' GMS 2017

$35.00
A truly beautiful and fruit driven blend of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. The Grenache here brings spice, confected notes, raspberries, rhubarb and sour cherry. The Mataro offers chocolate, brooding brambles and other slightly angry things sourced from dungeons deep. The Shiraz brings blue and black fruits, chocolate and fine, fine tannins. It’s a mad mélange this, one we’ll tip our hat to, whilst asking for it to be filled.

At the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, the March Hare offers Alice a glass of wine. Sadly he has no wine, only tea. We love tea but we’d rather have wine, especially if that wine has an ethereal combination of peppy perfume, suitable structure, carousing complexity, dangerously dark fruit, brooding brambles and ridiculous rhubarb. This wine is all that, exactly, and we suspect you’ll be mad as a hatter if you miss out. But only if you try the wine first, and that is just what we recommend you do! So knock off the cap, pour yourself a bucket and we bet you’ll have felt just like a milliner! Here’s tipping the lid to this wonderful wine which is brimming with Grenache from Light Pass and Ebenezer, moulded by Mataro from Stonewell and Ebenezer, and finished with a hatful of old vine Shiraz.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot. The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Coupl ...

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.
