Sanglier bring us their take on a southwest French blend, a style where each grape supports the others to make a balanced and drinkable wine. In this case it’s 55% McLaren Vale grenache, 30% Clare Valley shiraz and 15% Adelaide Hills tannat. They call it a GST.
Vibrancy and freshness are the themes of this wine. Lots of raspberry and spice on the nose and on the palate it’s medium bodied and crunchy. Crunchy what you may ask? Crunchy berries and plums from the grenache! The tannat brings tannin, a hallmark of the variety and shiraz brings spice. It’s a Euro-inspired version of of the Classic Dry Red and very good indeed.
“Well. It’s another beauty. Smoky and reductive, peppery and red fruited. The sparks fly. It’s a sinewy red with pretty floral/bubble gum elements and plenty of smoky spice. Plus fruit, red berried fruit, of which it has plenty. It’s not dense or dark or anything like that; it’s frisky and elegant, but with the substance to back it up. Would I buy/drink it? In a heartbeat.”

Adelaide as a wine region includes Barossa, Fleurieu and the Adelaide Hills. The wines that use this as their region tend to be very interesting, as they'll inevitably use some cooler, stylish fruit from the Hills, bolstered with richer fruit sourced from one of the other two regions. Grange is a multi-regional blend, after all.
