2014 1864 Greenock GSM is vivid purple – black in colour. There are inviting and lifted aromatics of wild berries, rose perfume, marzipan, all-spice, raspberry, musk, licorice and a touch of forest earth. The full bodied palate is filled with juicy dark berry fruits. Fresh and bright, ripe tannins add backbone and structure. The hallmark of this well balanced wine is the purity of fruit, respected long term maturation in seasoned French barrels. Very drinkable, this GSM is completed by a lengthy finish. This is an approachable, fruit-driven wine that can be enjoyed now but will cellaring well over decade.
