2015 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. La Resistance! Grenache + Shiraz + Mourvedre
French inspired and with the lightness of touch that those words imply, this GSM is fruity, spicy and earthy all at once. Elegant but no shortage of flavour. Plus, perfect for vegans!
It's not hard to see the appeal. It's only light to medium-bodied but the sweetness of aniseed, the rush of raspberry and the ripple of earthen spice notes lend plenty of hands to the wine's drinkability/deliciousness. 90 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion
How’s it taste?
This is definitely a Grenache-driven GSM! Subtle seasoned oak and caramel lead to a deep-fruited, dark cherry and strawberry palate with supple fine-grain tannin. Gentle refreshing acidity gives great line and drives the brooding and delicious fruit through to a lingering finish.
Who made it?
Brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela are the latest generation of the Chaffey family to ply their vinous trade in Australia.Their hand-made, minimal intervention wines come from small parcels of low yielding vineyards spread throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Drawing on true old vines and complex soils they see themselves as part parfumer - discovering delicate aromatics; part historian - preserving the purity of pristine fruit and part mad scientist - reveling in the art of small batch blending.

Let’s face it - we all have very different wine tastes and not every wine you find will be right for you right now. That’s why I’ve put together a little selection of my favourites - wines that I’d be very happy to enjoy this weekend which are guaranteed to hit the spot.
