GSM is a term used to easily describe a southern Rhone-style blend. The three main varietals produced are Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre They are blended to produce a wine that has balance and maximizes the best qualities of each grape.Grenache boasts a plushness and some spice, while Rhone grown Syrah can be meaty and rich with black pepper. Mourvèdre provides more earth with tonnes of tannin and colour.
GSMs can be produced in regions outside of France, but they all have their own character based on terroir and winemaking style.
The Lavau family is well established in the southern Rhone. They own three wineries, which produce wine from over 300 growers from almost all of the southern Rhone's appellations.
How it looks
Medium ruby red with light and soft edges. Decent legs hang on the sides of the glass.
How it smells
Packed with dark berries and black cherries. Additional notes of lavender and dried florals.
How it tastes
A blend of 45% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre. The darker fruits and florals flow through to the mid-palate and are joined by some anise. An easy drinking blend that is medium bodied and holds moderate acidity. The fruits fade in the finish, while the tannins linger slightly.
We recommend enjoying within the next 2 years. Decanting is not necessary, but beneficial. Serve slightly chilled to 16 degrees Celsius and allow to warm while decanting
