Ripe red berry fruits and spice with a lift of floral notes are prominent on the nose. A seamless integration highlighting the best attributes from each variety in this red blend. A spectrum of bright red fruits and supple tannin from the Shiraz combines with the generous juicy raspberry flavours the Grenache. Touriga Nacional complements perfectly with rose petal and floral-like spice.
Gamekeepers Shiraz, Grenache & Touriga parcels are sourced from mostly southern Barossa Valley, with red brown loam over shale soils, perfect for highlighting fresh varietal characters.
All varietal parcels are crushed and fermented separately, between 6 and 8 days at 22 to 24 degrees. Post fermentation the wine was matured in stainless steel tanks, with a portion of the Shiraz kept on yeast lees to add complexity and texture, prior to being blended and bottled
