2022 'Super G' - Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre

2022 'Super G' - Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre

2022 The Story 'Super G' GSM

Grenache 58%, Syrah 36%, Mourvedre 6%

Super G is our 'Rhoney' nod to super tuscans, playing with varieties generally not seen in a region dominated by one variety. The Grampians is planted to over 80% Shiraz/Syrah, and we have access to some of the only Grenache and Mourvedre vineyards in the region.

Grenache from Arrawatta Vineyard at low elevation just south of Great Western, a little more Grenache from our own Moyston Hills in the south (about half a tonne) and Mourvedre from our Moyston Hills vineyard as well.

The Syrah component is this year from Moyston Hills, adding more pepper than usual. Grenache and Mourvedre are destemmed and Syrah is fermented with some whole bunches, so that the final cuvee is around 10% whole bunches this year. Natural ferments and around 3 weeks on skins with pump overs every second day. We generally use an 'infusion' style, restricting manual manipulation of the cap to the bare minimum. From there the wine spends 8 months only in a combination of old puncheons, 1000lt oak vat and a couple of older french hogsheads.

A fine, cool vintage not dissimilar in heat and rain to 21, but seemingly more red fruited, more tannin complexity and more rotundone. It will take a little longer to unfurl, but should be a very classy medium term wine.

GOLD - 95 Points. "It's not heavy but it's so wild with spice and so generally captivating that it's hard to put it down. This is a cracker of a wine. Red and blue berried fruit flavours, black pepper notes, a mezcal aspect and flings of roasted nuts. It's ripe and robust, in a mid-weight way, but the real key here is that it's aflame with roasted spice/pepper notes."
