Clarry’s GSM 2018 is vivid purple in colour. Amazingly lifted and bright, there are bountiful aromatics of dark plum, violet, ripe raspberry, musk, sarsaparilla, cinnamon and a touch of dried herbs.
The palate is generous and mouth-filling. It is well rounded with lavish flavours of ripe berries, dark fruits and a trace of choc mint. There are engaging fine natural tannins giving a seamless and elegant structure. An alluring radiance of fruit purity prevails throughout, with limited seasoned barrel maturation adding complexity and softness. Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro all work in harmony together delivering a layered wine of ample flavour, splendid structure and a lingering finish. Clarry’s is an approachable, fruit-driven and opulent GSM that is best enjoyed now or over the next five years.
This wine is a delightful purple red colour. The nose is fabulous, dark plums, blackberries, blueberries, with a slight dusting of icing sugar, exotic spices, and a savoury earthiness all mingled together. The palate is not a let down it's absolutely delicious, that plummy blackberry fruit, mingled with dark raspberries, pure fruited, long and lively. It has a real creaminess to the palate, great length, and really really fine tannins on the finish. The oak is well in the background, leaving all that wonderful organic fruit to do the work.
Given all the above, the wine is actually wonderfully medium bodied, as this style should be. This wine tastes like it should be $30 or more a bottle, it's that good. It is easily the best all of this line yet, and should become your house wine. Gavin Trott
