Not many Winemakers would argue against the outstanding characters found in McLaren Vale Grenache and Shiraz. Hence the reason for the abundance of Grenache blends that can be found in McLaren Vale.  The ‘GSM’ blend is based on wines from the Rhone region in France where too, Grenache and Shiraz are the stars of the show.
