Aged for 14 months in small oak barrels, Dalton Alma GSM is an elegant red blend comprised of 52% Shiraz, 32% Grenache and 16% Mourvedre. Rich in notes of ripe plum and exotic spice, this full bodied wine is a fantastic addition to any fine dining experience.

 Wine Enthusiast 92 points (Apr 2015)
Dark violet-red in the glass, this Rhone-style blend offers bewitching aromas of black cherry, anise and creme brulee. Its mouth-pleasing texture envelops flavors of black cherry, anise, clove and vanilla custard. The smooth, lasting finish presents a bright note at just the right moment.

Wine maker notes
The grapes were selectively picked in late September and early October. The grapes for this wine came from separate vineyard that were picked and fermented separately. During fermentation the grape cap was pumped over several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction of the wine in the gentlest way possible. Before completing fermentation the wine was pressed out, and the free run wine was separated and used to make this wine. Malolactic fermentation was then encouraged and when completed the wine was racked into new and one year old French oak barrels for 12 months. Once the aging was complete, each parcel was individually tasted and the final blend of Shiraz Grenache and Mourvedre was made. The blended wine was allowed to mature for a further 2 months in oak.

Food pairing
This wine goes particularly well with stews such as Osso Bucco and hearty winter casseroles.
