Quarry Hill Wines 'West Block' Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre 2017 (Canberra District, NSW)


Gold Medal - 2018 Canberra Wine Show

We vinified the three components of this blend separately, allowing us to adjust the final blend to create the best structure. We had been intending to make a GSM, but we found the Shiraz-dominant blend worked better (the excess Grenache found a home in our Tempranillo). 

The result is a light wine with a beautifully structured palate - generous dark-fruited Shiraz, spice & cherry-like sweetness of Grenache and the fragrance, backbone and savoury edge of Mourvèdre.

"55% shiraz (Best's Old Block clone), 35% grenache, 10% mourvedre, 25% whole bunch, matured in a mix of new and used French oak. Light, bright crimson; light-bodied, but has a perfumed bouquet of red berries/cherries and a fresh palate with no off characters whatsoever. Finishes with silky tannins." - 92 Points, James Halliday
