2011 Soul Growers Para Creek GSM
James Brown sang about it and Aretha Franklin and Otis Reading definitely had their share of it. SOUL. If what’s good for the soul is good for the body then put on some old soul and pour me many a glass of Soul Growers 2011 GSM and let the cleansing begin! Brilliant blood plum in colour and with a vibrant juicy nose laced with wafts of Vanilla thanks to its time in American and French oak. David, Paul and the Linder Brothers have hand crafted themselves a very highly enjoyable GSM. A well balanced hit of acid helps to build the wine a structure that enjoys a deep cassis burst and hints richness in the weight. Fine tannin at the end help to reel in the juicy richness and certainly have you leaning for more. My advice, pour a glass slide on the record player and sit and enjoy the night….
