This type of blend is common in many parts of the world, such as the Southern Rhone Valley of France, Australia and even Spain. Australia coined the abbreviation GSM, related to the dominant percentages of the blend. This particular blend is 73% Grenache, 18% Syrah and 9% Mourvedre. Grenache adds bright red fruit while Syrah adds blue fruit, color, depth and structure and Mourvedre adds complexity with forest floor and spice. This wine was aged in a combination of large 500L French oak puncheons and 228L Burgundy barrels for over 22 months.
