Dark vibrant saturated colours. Very youthful and compressed with the oak barely noticeable. The wine is dominated by the fragrance of red berries, spice, sour to roasted cherry, plum and cut flower stems.

 

The spices and earth from the Grenache, and amazing sweetness (often referred to as the blood of the blend) and very long gritty vibrant tannins. The Shiraz adds slight spicy red mulberry, potpourri fruit characters then the liquorish and prune characters, as well as a boldness mid-way in the taste (often referred to as the flesh of the wine).

 

The Mourvedre adds notes of ripe salami, iodine, lavender characters and late grainy tannin (often referred to as the bones of the wine).

Professional Reviews

94/100
Wine Spectator
Dense, rich and distinctive for the red berry accents to its dark plum and licorice flavors, maintaining a sense of freshness in the face of very ripe character and stunning depth. The tannins melt nicely into the finish. Has high alcohol, but handles it well.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jun 15 2007



94/100
Wine Companion
Sturdy red and black fruits, chocolate and savoury tannins, all on a scale the Barossa doesn't deliver; seamlessly integrated tannins and oak ex barrel ferment.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2005



92/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2003 The Ironstone Pressings GSM is a gorgeous blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Shiraz, and 5% Mourvedre. It explodes from the glass with notes of Provencal herbs, black cherries, cassis, pepper, licorice, and incense. A wine of great intensity, richness, body, and purity with terrific balance as well as a layered mouthfeel, this superb Australian red should be consumed over the next 10-12 years.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



90/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Roasted cherry, raspberry preserves, smoked meat, bacon fat and anise on the nose. Rich, full and dense, with concentrated flavors of sweet cherry, cassis, tar and licorice, accented by a note of tobacco and some exotic oak spices. Long and supple on the back.
