Grounded Cru Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2017

A refined, racy red made possible by Angels!

    • This is Geoff's first GSM blend for Naked! Having sourced fruit parcels from various sub-regions of McLaren Vale, he's included the finest of each varietal from the most suitable soil types. The wine is 60% Grenache, 30% Shiraz and 10% Mourvèdre, aka Mataro. The synergy of the trio creates a delicious drop that shines with all sorts of food! Antipasto anyone?
    • Unlike overpowering reds from the region, the GSM is refined, light and delicate, with flavours balanced beautifully on the palate. Pretty raspberry and cherry notes will sing out from your ruby glass. It's complex earthiness leads to a lip-smacking long finish & will have you coming back for more, so why not stock up!
    • Championing one of the most underrated red grapes in Australia currently - Grenache - Geoff is proud to get this hand crafted beauty out to the Naked universe. He credits Angels for perpetuating Naked's virtuous cycle & giving him complete winemaking autonomy - at last!

Ageing advice
This one is best enjoyed now or as the layers develop until 2020.

Serving advice
Serve at room temperature. Try opening 30 minutes before hand to let it breathe so you can enjoy the full spectrum of it's lighter, slightly spicy body.

Local food match
Fantastic with an antipasto spread, or a fresh hot pizza with your favourite toppings. Try chorizo, roast pumpkin and fetta - delish!
