Red Cherries | Damson Plums | Black Tea Tannins “For the love of wine, open the bottle”– Anon

SKU: ZF17LSGR71D1 Category: Tags: , , ,

For too long Grenache has been a backup performer in GSM. It is time now for our beloved Love Symbol to shine as a solo-artist. Love Symbol’s “autograph” is its soft-yet-juicy tannins and taut acidity that fill the mouth making you yearn for another performance. A wine of stature, elegance and poise… our Love Symbol will make you fall in love. We promise.


Deliciously medium-bodied, with a kaleidoscope of flavors from Red Cherries through to bright Damson Plums and subtle spice. On the nose, these flavors are reinforced and accented by perfumed Black Tea Tannins and only a cheeky hint of oak.

92 Points/Exceptional Tastings.com 23/05/2018 “Medium garnet color. Aromas and flavors of berry custard pie, cherry shrub, and chocolate cola float with a satiny, bright, dry- yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, refreshing, long chocolate nuts and cherries, creme brulee, and delicate spice finish. A wonderfully rich and chewy grenache with loads of attractive fruit and oak flavors.”
