Named after an historical surveyor’s geographic marker overlooking our vineyard, Glen Garvald wines represent our varietal and replanting response to climate change.
This wine takes its cue from our winemaker’s enormously formative vintage experience at the legendary Domaine Jean-Louis Chave in the Hermitage appellation of France’s northern Rhône Valley.
Our 2019 Glen Garvald Shiraz Marsanne raps on the theme of co-fermentation and integration by incorporating Marsanne skins from the adjacent block into the Shiraz. The resultant wine shows the influence that even a tiny percent inclusion of a simpatico compatible ‘other’ can bring to a wine. The colour is vibrant, the aroma pronounced and bold, the palate weighty yet medium-bodied, fleshy, spicy and long.
