Tellurian Wines

GSM 2022

Heathcote’s warm days, cool nights and ancient Cambrian soils bring out the best in these varieties, the backbone of the Rhone Valley reds. Medium-bodied , Tellurian GSM balances the softness and elegance of grenache with structure and savoury characters of shiraz and mourvèdre.



All fruit sourced from our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.


Grapes harvested separately at ripeness, each parcel fermented in small open top fermenters. Shiraz fermented on skins for 11 days, grenache 12-16 days, and mourvèdre 9 days. All ferments hand plunged or pumped over up to twice a day. 10 months maturation in seasoned French oak barriques prior to filtration.


Light plum-red in colour. Lifted aromas of raspberry, cherry, plum and wild strawberry combine with subtle savoury, earthy notes. Medium bodied palate highlighted by vibrant red fruits, elegant texture and mouthfeel, with soft, plush tannins and well balanced acidity providing a moreish finish.
