Top value red from the Clare Valley here by Anthony Pearce and Craig Turnbull. This is Grenache and Shiraz both picked from an old, dry grown vineyard in the Clare. The vineyard is managed organically and at around 450m ASL, is one of the highest vineyard sites in the region. It's a fresher feeling, more buoyant style of red wine from the region. It's all about the perkiness of the Grenache first and foremost, with the characteristic savoury structure of the Shiraz from the region giving the backbone. Loads of personality and super approachable as a young red, it can ever handle a slight chill if you are that way inclined.
What it Tastes Like
Bright red fruit with some floral notes, aniseed, mulberry and a barbecued meat character in the background. It has a freshness you don’t often see from the Clare. All about vital young fruit character and youthful personality. Fine sandy tannins lend a gentle structure to the wine and a kiss of amaro herbs signs off the finish. Good gear, such a great drink.
Organically farmed dry grown single vineyard at 450 ASL in the Clare Valley. Top of the block is planted to Grenache, Shiraz planted below.

About the Producer
This funky young label is the brainchild of Craig Turnbull and Anthony Pearce. Gestalt (meaning an organised whole considered to be greater than the sum of its parts) is about balanced, youthful wines sourced from small organically grown vineyards around South Australia. Whether it is whacky blends of uncool varieties such as Savagnin and Petit Manseng or pure single vineyard, single varietal expression, there is something about these wines which make you want to keep coming back for more!
The Clare Valley knows what it does, and does it very, very well. Riesling and Shiraz are the rockstars of the region and with some of the most famous wines in the county coming from this small pocket of SA, the Clare’s reputation for quality only grows year on year.
Grenache is the great sleeping giant of Australian red wine. We are the custodians of the oldest producing Grenache vines in the world, some ancient vineyards planted as far back as the 1850’s. Modern Australian Grenache is a different beast to the wines of yesteryear, they are more youthful and vibrant, showing bright red fruit characters, silky tannins and a delicious array of spices. With the viticultural resources we have at our disposal in this country, Australia can be one of the world’s leading producers of this variety, making wines that easily rival the best of Europe.
