2014 Kalleske Clarry's GSM
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Plenty of spicy red fruits, a bit of licorice, and pleasant touches of meatiness and tannin combine happily in this medium-bodied and satisfyingly long wine. Delicious with grilled flank steak.
$24.29 as part of a mixed case.
"Clarry’s GSM 2014 is vivid purple in colour. There are inviting and lifted aromatics of wild berries, rose perfume, marzipan, all-spice, raspberry, musk, licorice and a touch of forest earth. The medium-bodied palate is filled with juicy berry fruits. Fresh and bright, slatey tannins add backbone and structure. The hallmark of this well balanced wine is the purity of fruit, respected by limited maturation in seasoned barrels. Very drinkable, this GSM is completed by a lengthy finish. This is an approachable, fruit-driven and opulent wine that is best enjoyed now or over the next five years."
"Vintage 2014 was an excellent year. The 2014 Clarry’s is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, with all grapes from the Kalleske’s organic farm. To preserve the superb fresh fruit flavours of the Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, wines were only aged in very old oak hogsheads and only for a limited time of six months. On completion of maturation, components were blended for balanced flavour, texture and complexity. 14.5% alc."
"94 pts ... Startling quality. Fresh berried fruit with firm, boney ribs of tannin. Not at all the easy-going quaffer the price might suggest. Licorice, cloves, toast and that sure flush of squished red and black berries. Firmness of tannin is a chief distinguishing factor. Drink through 2020."

$35.99New Vintage! What a crazy good wine! An intense core of dark fruit is surrounded by cinnamon spice and fragrant wood aromas and flavors. The finish is filled with spice, fine tannins and more dark berry flavors. Surprisingly tasty with a miso-soy chicken broth with sauteed tofu and broccoli.
