Blackbilly Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2021 (GSM) 12 Pack

$300.00

Blackbilly wine is produced using the famous vineyards of McLaren Vale known for wines of richness and diversity. Using modern and traditional winemaking techniques we craft wines of exceptional value and flavour for drinking and enjoyment.
Blends of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre is McLaren Vale’s signature blended wine. Old vineyards, a Mediterranean climate and classical winemaking, which includes the use of oak ensures a wine of substance and style.
This is a regional blend using the varieties Grenache — from a vineyard planted in 1910 — (58%) and used for its fruit, Shiraz (38%) – used for its structure & colour and Mourvedre (5%) – for spiciness. These varieties have underpinned the region’s wines and many of the grapes come from prized old vines.
After fermentation, the individual wines are matured in a mixture of old larger format oak with a smaller portion of smaller seasoned oak for complexity. Rich and savory and with life, this wine will suit many elegant to full flavoured foods, particularly Mediterranean cuisine.
