Hayes Family Wines Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2018

From the Regional Series, this is a wonderful drink to kick back with on a cool autumn evening. It's a step up from the previous vintage yet it maintains its supreme slurp factor.

Gee I like the way this wine goes about it's work. That industrious workman like swagger without the frills but a well presented product is the reward.

Medium bodied, GSM is one of the great marriages in the wine world, albeit a menage a trois. The fruit is sourced from the northern Barossa vineyards of Koonunga and Ebenezer.

Attractive scents of blue and red flowers, juicy red berries plus a lovely rub of earthiness and dusty tannins sum it up best. A 85/10/5 blend, there's some impressive width from the bright fruit but there is a focus on the mid palate. A great length stretches the interest factor as brown spices continue to entice. It's moreish deluxe - pour a big glass and kick back kind of wine.

Delightful now but will age well to the medium term if desired.
