2019 GSM Melange
2019 GSM Melange

The 2019 GSM Mélange is our first pure “ G, S & M” since 2015. This year graced us with beautiful Syrah after several challenging vintages. While Grenache and Mourvèdre are consistent crops, Syrah can be difficult to grow and is a little less hearty. We were thrilled with the 2019 harvest, however. This vintage saw a long cold soak, and a partial  spontaneous fermentation. The result was a rich and highly aromatic Syrah with lots of mint, eucalyptus and floral notes. Fingers crossed for more of this to come.
