Rosenvale Vineyards Estate Grown GSM 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
Rosenvale are one of our favourite up-and-comers from the Barossa, crafters of this rich, powerful GSM. The raspberry characteristic, derived from the grenache component, is the dominant fruit, with support from plum and blackberry hints carried by the shiraz. To round it all out, there’s a bit of allspice and earthiness thanks to the mataro. It’s bold, deep in flavour and ready to go now, or any time in the next few years. See wine critic Sam Kim’s review below.
“Splendidly ripe and enticing with sweet plum, spiced cherry, cedar and subtle game notes on the nose. It's equally comforting on the palate delivering excellent weight and roundness backed by loads of silky tannins, finishing long and velvety. At its best: now to 2030.”
Full price $35.00 from the producer.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
