2017 NICK SPENCER GUNDAGAI DRY RED BLEND
RRP $33 / 2027
For nearly a decade, Nick Spencer crafted wines for Eden Road. In ‘17 he left to concentrate on his eponymous label specialising in the areas of Tumbarumba and Gundagai. This is an exceptional blend – 58% shiraz, 31% touriga with splashes of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon. Excellent dark crimson; heady aromatics of dark fruit, Middle Eastern spices, warm earth and flint. The just-medium-bodied palate is an exercise in restraint with fine tannins, fresh acidity and it leaves such an impression. Beautifully modulated and delicious. JF 13.5% alc.
WINEMAKER Nick Spencer What is the inspiration behind this wine?
The Gundagai red blend is a homage to the great Australian red blends of the mid- to late-1900s. The philosophy is to craft a wine that captures the landscape of Gundagai. It’s a wine that is as much about style as it is about individual grape varieties.
