Love this GSM. Different than a CDR, but not a fruit-bomb. Well balanced and a smooth silky texture.

This one is fun as a low-tannin, fruit-flavored Rhone blend. Here are some reviews:
Winemaker's Notes:
Angove Famliy Crest 2013 Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre is bright ruby red with rich aromas of candied cherry, anise and spice with a hint of vanilla. Enticing flavors of cherry, toffee and plum follows on the palate with a soft, full and rounded finish. Drink now until 2020.

Critical Acclaim:
Good hue; luscious and fruit-sweet (not sugar-sweet); an attractive wine that will be most enjoyable with pasta dishes to trim that sweetness back a bit.
