Clarry’s GSM 2015 is vivid purple-red in colour. There are bright aromatics emanating from the glass including raspberry, musk perfume, mixed candy and sarsaparilla as well as savoury spice and dried herbs. The palate is round, mouth-filling and full flavoured with juicy crushed berry fruits. The natural tannins are extremely fine and add structure and texture to the seamless palate.
Radiant purity of fruit is the hallmark of this wine, with very limited seasoned barrel maturation adding complexity and softness. Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro all work in harmony together delivering a layered wine with rich lively fruits balanced by a touch of earth and spice. A lingering finish completes this GSM. Clarry’s is an approachable, fruit-driven and opulent wine 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
