2016 Texas GSM Melange
GSM Mélange

GSM stands for Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. In 2016 we expanded to a GSM Mélange and incorporated Carignan and Tannat. With this blend, we continue to embrace Rhone blending traditions, and enhance the identity with varietals that excel in our Texas soils. Carignan is a traditional Rhone variety that lends acidity and vibrant fruit flavors to the blend. Tannat is a rising star in Texas that year after year can lend color, tannin, and structure.  The GSM Melange is a very food friendly wine, pairing with dishes ranging from spiced or cured meats, dried cheeses, kale and sausage soup, arugula and fennel salads, roasted vegetables, to meats and fishes such as salmon or pork.
