The Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro is intense in its perfumed aromas of cherry liqueur and blackberry compote, with notes of spice and anise. Flavours of dark fruits predominate with velvety tannins providing a backbone to carry the voluptuous flavours through to the finish.

Powell & Son
Powell & Son is a relatively new wine brand and is the brain child of a man with an incredible reputation – Dave Powell. Over the years Dave has worked at iconic wineries such as Rockford in the heart of the Barossa. Dave’s passion lay in the vineyards where he procured fruit in leiu of payment in the early days. It is from this that Dave was able to establish Torbreck. It soon became a cult winery from the Barossa Valley, especially in international circles.
Dave Powell has now partnered with his son Callum on this new venture. Powell & Son are crafting exceptional wines from premium vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valley. They employ traditional, minimalist winemaking techniques. The inspiration for this style of winemaking has its roots in France’s Rhone Valley. Powell & Son red wines are made from the classic Rhone varietals: Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro and its whites: Roussanne, Marsanne as well as Eden Valley Riesling. Great wine begin in the vineyard is the philosophy that Powell & Son has been built on. The wines all speak of the place where grown, especially the Powell & Son GSM.
Over the years, Dave Powell has created wines of such quality as to earn him the perfect score of 100 points from Wine Advocate. International wine critics have also provided high acclaim for these wines . Powell & Son GSM is therefore no exception.
