Grant Burge The Holy Trinity Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2016 750ml
The Holy Trinity is a traditional blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. The fruit for this wine is Barossa grown, predominantly handpicked from old, dry-grown vines which range from 35 to 90 years old. Heat and dryness toward the end of the harvest created excellent conditions for the late-ripening Grenache and Mourvèdre.
Winemaking: A portion of the wine was fermented in traditional old concrete fermenters with the cap held down by header boards – similar to the Southern Rhone technique – allowing heavy extraction of colour and tannin, particularly from the Grenache.
Tasting Notes: The Holy Trinity is a richly flavoured and elegantly structured GSM that continues the long and lauded heritage for this traditional blend in the Barossa Valley. The nose has a bouquet redilent of warm curry spices, earthiness, liquer cherry and plum.ÿThis medium to full-bodied wine is filled with vibrant flavours of fresh red fruits and vanilla, complemented by fine and ripe tannins that run the length of the palate. The dense, mouth-filling mid palate and long, textural finish combine to create a wine that is rich and elegant, sweet and savoury, and will sit beautifully on any table now, or cellar gracefully for 8-12 years.
