2017 NICK SPENCER GUNDAGAI DRY RED BLEND

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

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.
