Named after an historical surveyor’s geographic marker overlooking our vineyard, Glen Garvald wines represent our varietal and replanting response to climate change.
The idea of blending grape varieties to create a wine of amplified expression, structure, integration and balance; harnessing each components individual strengths to fashion a wine greater than the sum of its manifold components, has long held a fascination for us as wine producers. As such, this wine will find its own unique voice with every vintage and no two vintages will ever be varietally or proportionally the same.
Slowly unfolding in the glass to reveal its multiple layers, it leads with aromas of mandarin, musk, pot pourri, chervil, cloves, dried oregano and crème brûlée; with subtle savoury elements of dusty oak and slate. The complex palate highlights the interplay between the varieties with a fine acid base carrying juicy fruit flavours interplaying with a buttery viscosity and slow spreading tactile phenolics. A true food and cheese lover’s wine!
