As soon as you pour a glass of this delicious red you’ll be seduced by the rich ruby hue and enticing aromas of red berries, black pepper and dried flowers. The first sip reveals a full body, silky smooth mouthfeel and intense flavours of black plums, cherries and wild berries. The finish is long with a distinctive smoky tobacco character and the firm structure and tannins make this red an ideal partner for grilled red meats or pasta served with a rich tomato sauce.
GSM stands for the three grape varieties which are used to compose this inviting red wine; Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. All three are typical components of red Rhone Valley blends since they work together in beautiful harmony to produce a rich but well-balanced red wine.
The Grenache adds a ripe red fruit character and richness to the blend while the Syrah contributes hints of black pepper and a firm structure. Smaller quantities of Mourvedre help to add earthy hints and plenty of tannins and a deep colour to the final composition. To preserve the pure character of each variety Maison Lavau ferment and age this wine in stainless steel vats.
