Paisley Turntable GSM 2021


I’m sure the name will appeal to some, as curious as it is, but far better to concentrate on the wine. A blend of 42% Grenache, 39% Shiraz and 19% Mataro, the vineyards are located at the southern end of the Barossa. The Grenache vineyard has vines which were planted 80 years ago and the Mataro 40 years. The Shiraz is from near Angaston in the Eden Valley. The different varieties are made separately before blending. Wild ferment, then a year and a half in older hogsheads. A deep, dark maroon in colour, the nose gives us notes of plums, cherries, warm earth, bergamot and cloves. Ripe with a chocolatey palate and characters of mocha and coffee beans. This is, put simply, utterly delicious. Soft, silky tannins with excellent length, and should drink superbly for six to ten years. A cracker, and stunning value. So good one can forgive the name.
