 GSM, GMS, MSG... Some good, some bad. There is plenty of the later (MSG) in Hong Kong, not so much of the former (GSM).

  
We at Wine Brothers are all about pushing the boundaries and making sure that our loyal family are exposed to the world's best small batch wine. This is more a traditional take on GSM, from the traditionalists at All Saints. Makes sense. To prove how traditional they are.... they still press their wine in a basket press from 1883 - that is old school, and super cool. Love it! 
The wine is a really quality set up. Correct in every sense of the word. It is the sort of wine that as a schoolboy would have had its socks pulled up, tie straight, blazer done up. Smart. Clean. The sort of wine you would take home to meet the parents.
    
 

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 ." 

    

FOOD MATCH

Versatile with food - something earthy or red meaty will work best. 

 

JC Score
8.5/10 
A quality wine. Technically very sound. Looking solid now - will age with style. Correct in every sense of the word. It is the sort of wine that as a schoolboy would have had its socks pulled up, tie straight, blazer done up. Smart. Clean. The sort of wine you would take home to meet the parents. 

A wine lovers wine!
