2011 Serafino GSM
Lifted aromatics of rosewater, exotic spices and rustic dark fruits.More info
Region: McLaren Vale
Variety: Grenache (54%), Shiraz (41%) and Mataro (5%)
Tasting Notes: Sweet red berry dark fruits and chocolate, this is a full and silky wine with generous presence and supple, fine tannins.
The fruit was destemmed, but not crushed, into small open fermenters and allowed to spend between 1 and 2 weeks on skins in order to optimize colour and tannin extraction. Post primary fermentation, the ferments were gently pressed and allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation in a combination of French and American oak. At completion of the secondary ferment, the barrels were racked and returned in order to clarify them slightly and allow ideal maturation conditions. Selective blending of various barrels has allowed us to create a wine of opulence, grace and complexity.
