Spice

Dark cherry with flecks of ruby this wine has a generous and lifted nose brimming with fruits of the forest, sweet spice and a touch of earth. The well balanced palate shows both notes of fresh fruit (plums + raspberry) as well as savoury smoked peat and spice tones. Fine line of acidity, firm, grippy tannins and a moreish finish.

About This Wine

  • PAIRING

    Pair this with rosemary and peppercorn spiced rack of lamb, venison sausages, sauteed mushrooms or a provencal pizza.
  • WINEMAKER

    A traditional style using classic Barossa grape varieties, we looked for structure and integration of flavours. Grenache provides the sumptuous savoury, spice and fragrance, and a gentle earthiness and leather with age. Mataro contributes deeper gamier flavours and flesh to the palate whilst Shiraz acts as a strong foundation to the blend, giving colour and structure.
  • PRODUCTION

    Fruit for Motley Bunch GMS is sourced from three locations around the Barossa. Majority of the Grenache comes from Merv John’s property in Light Pass, while the Mataro is sourced from the Schutz family acreage in Stonewell and the Shiraz from Resurrection Vineyard in Ebenezer. To maintain the delicate integrity of the Grenache fruit this juice was aged in older French Puncheons, where the larger size of the barrel (500 litres) results in less oak influence. The Shiraz and Mataro juice was aged in a combination of new (10%) and older French Hogsheads (300 litres).
  • POINTS

    91 POINTS! James Halliday.

    "45/35/20% grenache mataro shiraz. A wine of composure. It tastes of raspberry, blueberry, anise and dried spice but it’s the impression of both balance and flow that impresses most. Accordingly, it’s drinking very well young."
