Gemtree Wines respect and nurture their unique patch of earth in South Australia's famous McLaren Vale region. Farming their vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices, this philosophy rewards with fruit full of flavour and purity which is reflected in the outstanding quality of the wines crafted at Gemtree.

This 2018 Gemtree Bloodstone Shiraz is a pure and velvety McLaren Vale Shiraz evoking ripe red cherries and blackcurrant. An approachable Shiraz in its youth, this is designed to be enjoyed over the next five years.

"Ripper of a drink here. Ripe berry fruitiness to the fore, some dark chocolate, sweet earthiness that feels very 'regional'. The perfume is strong and the flavours are set to medium weight. There's good concentration but a lot of freshness, too. This plush juicy wine drinks like a charm, soft in texture, a little wishy-washy you could say but a short spell in the fridge and this will tighten up nicely. Drink with gusto" - Mike Bennie, Best Buy Wines, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine, Feb/ March 2020.

A lifted and aromatic wine with notes of red cherry, black current, blueberry and a hint of spice.

The palate is medium-weight with a soft and generous mouthfeel. Well-balanced acidity highlights the vibrant and complex red and blue fruits yet still maintaining purity and elegance.

Eat with: Meats and Mediterranean vegetables straight from the char grill.
