McGuigan Shortlist Barossa Valley GSM Red Wine
McGuigan Shortlist Barossa Valley GSM Red Wine is full-bodied, with deep fruit flavours such as cherries and plums, as well as subtle sweet spice notes and a savoury earthy edge. The finish is long and fine, lending this wine great refinement. The wine has enticing aromas of lifted red berry fruits with hints of liquorice.
The popularity of Australian wine stems from the foresight of its winemaking forefathers, who identified a short list of ideal climates and soils required for premium vineyards to thrive. Today, McGuigan Wines provides wine enthusiasts with its own Shortlist, with each wine highlighting a celebrated wine variety and the premium wine region from which it has established its distinguished reputation.
To ensure maximum fruit retention, the fruit for this wine is fermented in 8 tonne fermenters at cool temperatures for 10 days. After fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation before being transferred to a mix of old and new French and American Hogshead barrels to mature for 14 months before bottling.
