About The Wine

This unique blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Tannat is made by Michael Corbett, the man behind cult McLaren Vale label Vanguardist.

The three varieties combine harmoniously to create a red that is balanced, savoury and incredibly drinkable.

Cambell Mattinson described it as "both plush and tangy at once, both wild and clean too" in his 95 point review.

A great wine for the GSM enthusiast looking to explore other blends in the same genre.

The Wine Front

"This has plenty of fruit/flavour depth, throws savoury-spice-smoke-like notes aplenty, strings tannin intricately through the wine and adds bursts of redcurrant and anise. It’s both plush and tangy at once, both wild and clean too. Pepper, nuts, tightrope acidity; it all gets a gig here." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

A blend of grape varieties typically found in the south west of France made in a vibrant New World style. 45% McLaren Vale grenache; 35% Clare Valley shiraz; 20% Adelaide Hills tannat.

Here I wanted to have some fun with some of the things I love working with. The Blewitt Grenache as a base, I was able to overlay some bunchy Clare Shiraz and follow it up with the highly tannic and acid variety Tannat, sourced from Woodside. The handling was gentle, and the overall wine quite bright and light on its feet, but the presence is still there.
