SMG, like the firearm, the “Shock Value” SMG, actually, but it’s not as violent as it sounds. Fullish-bodied for the style, gorgeous ruby red, plenty of red apple and red berry, red red red, some French Oak vanilla notes.
Made using a bevy of labour-intensive old-fashioned methods, wild ferment, basket-pressed, unfined.
From The Winemaker
This wine is designed to be an easy drinking red wine that over delivers for the price. The Shiraz component gives the wine a nice blue fruit character and good depth of flavour, the Mataro gives the wine structure and an earthy character, while the Grenache shows plenty of juicy red fruits. This is the perfect BBQ wine, and works extremely well chilled in warmer weather.
About the Winery
Relative newcomers to a Barossa scene dominated by big names, Whistler’s young-gun approach to winemaking has been a huge hit - cheeky skeleton labels, a now entirely organic and biodynamic process, and an embrace of all things weird and funky.
Recently appointed winemaker Michael J. Corbett, formerly of Tyrells, brings to the table an uncommon attention to detail and a commitment to unfined, unfiltered wine, left to shine just as it left the barrel.
