McLaren Vale is Australia's best location for Grenache.

Or at least that's what James Halliday has declared.

And who are we to argue with the great man? Grenache really is a hero for the region, especially when partnered with Shiraz and Mourvedre - just like it is with this 2018 Serafino GSM.

A dual gold medal winner, this medium-bodied red showcases the red fruit beauty of McLaren Vale Grenache, supported by the plump, plummy goodness of ripe Shiraz and the darker earth/spice of Mourvedre.

Stefano (Steve) Maglieri is famous for creating generously textured reds (we absolutely loved his high scoring Cabernet) and this GSM is another lovely wine. A more medium-bodied and juicy wine than many straight Shiraz, and without the puckering tannic dryness of Cabernet Sauvignon this is just a Goldilocks-style balance of fruit and flavour, all wrapped in a polished, award-winning body.

How's it taste?

Medium bodied with a beautiful long even bright palate with musk, violets, plums and mouth watering silky tannin.

How was it made?

The fruit is destemmed and then whole fruit is transferred to small open fermenters. The fermentation lasts up to 10 days at moderate temperatures. During the fermentation the wine is taken away from the skins and returned over the skins to progress gentle extraction of the flavours and tannins. Carbonic maceration techniques are used on a small portion of the grapes to give an extra level of flavour.

Who made it?

The Serafino story began in 1964 when Steve (Serafino) Maglieri arrived in Australia from Italy as a passionate teenager full of dreams. Two years later, with the assistance of his father Giovanni, he planted his first vines in McLaren Vale that now extends to 350 acres, laying the foundation of a winemaking dynasty that today is known as Serafino Wines and overseen by his daughter, Maria. From the beginning, Steve and his father worked from dawn to dusk seven days a week to produce wines of such outstanding quality that it wasn’t long before the accolades began to flow.
