GSM, GMS, MSG... Some good, some bad. There is plenty of the later (MSG) in Hong Kong, not so much of the former (GSM).
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"A blend of Grenache (44%), Shiraz (31%), Mourvèdre (17%) and Cinsaut (8%). The wine is medium bodied with lifted perfumed notes from the Grenache, it also shows aromas of crushed berries and dried herbs. Richly flavoured with spicy plum, dark fruits and elegant tannins in a long and balanced finish.
The Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsaut were co-fermented in one of our 7 tonne open fermenters with the Shiraz being fermented separately alongside. The caps for both were hand plunged two-three times a day during the fermentation before being pressing off once complete. Pressing was in our 1883 hand-cranked wooden basket press which allows a gentle pressure to ensure the delicate style of the wine is preserved. The finished wines were matured in 3-4 year old oak barriques and puncheons for 6 months, then blended prior to bottling ."
Versatile with food - something earthy or red meaty will work best.

Clean and crisp but alluring and very drinkable in its youth.View full product details
