Lloyd Brothers The Presshouse GSM 2018
- Textured, savoury
- McLaren Vale
Sometimes you really want to sink into a glass of wine. It sparks this real joy that is only sparked every now and again at random. This is one of those wines. There’s so much to be said about the fantastic team at Lloyd Brothers, from their wine to their olives to their incredibly warm spirit. When they put their name to something, you know it’s going to be all kinds of great. The classic trio of grenache, shiraz and mourvedre coming out to play means it’s all about the fruit and generosity. All those buzz words of ‘round’ and ‘smooth’ really do come true in this wine. We’re calling it, this is the quaffer of the moment.
“Smooth and comforting, the wine shows dried cherry, roasted nut, tapenade and a hint of leather notes on the nose, followed by an attractively savoury palate that's juicy and lingering. Well composed with a harmonious finish.”
Full price $22.00 from the producer.

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
