Bass Line Grenache Shiraz Mataro
Made by our good mate Stuey Bourne, the Bass Line wines showcase his incredible knowledge of the Barossa Valley – the subtlest nuance of each district and grower. Beautifully balanced and not overpowering, they are a great tribute to our favourite region!
This is a medium bodied, oh-so elegant GSM with lifted, spicy fruit notes of blackberry and blueberry. On the palate it is well-balanced with soft tannins and integrated fruit characters, with a lingering (yet not heavy) finish. A delightfully more-ish wine to enjoy with or without food!
Stuey Bourne, Barossa Winemaker of the Year 2020, uses his unique knowledge and relationships to source parcels of fruit from 13 different vineyard sites around the Barossa Valley, with the final blend comprising 35% Grenache, 33% Shiraz and 27% Mataro, with just a touch of Cinsault, Durif and Graciano added for good measure. Made using traditional techniques, it is matured for 20 months in a combination of French puncheons and hogsheads (15% new) before bottling.
