About the wine

Funded by Angels, blended by Angels
  • This wine is extra special to me. It was blended with a group of lovely Angels at the Cutler’s Hall, Sheffield... which also happens to be my birthplace!
  • Boy did they do a good job. The result is this delicious 3 grape blend, predominantly unwooded Grenache with a dollop of Syrah and just a smidgeon of Mourvedre. 
  • The Grenache brings ripe and expressive fruit, think freshly picked raspberries sprinkled with cracked black pepper and a dribble of molasses. The Syrah adds weight and concentration, whilst the small percentage of oak aged Mourvèdre adds an extra dimension of savoury, spicy complexity.

Serving advice
Serve at 16-18°C. Open/Decant 30 minutes before serving

Food match
A GSM tends to call for more robust dishes such as red meats that have been cooked with or marinated in spices. Certain cheeses will also pair well but try to avoid creamy cheeses such as mozzarella. Other foods to avoid pairing with a GSM include shellfish, chicken or turkey and any dishes that have a cream-based sauce and citrus fruits. This is partly as the acid in this wine is medium so cream makes the wine feel flabby whilst the spicy, peppery notes tend to clash with shellfish and overpower chicken and are at odds with citrus sauces. My top suggestion would be lamb: it could simply be a roast leg of lamb; braised lamb shanks with gremolata and polenta; Moroccan tagine; spicy stews or casseroles or even a mild lamb korma (not overly creamy though - personally I prefer Rogan Josh better); rosemary and peppercorn spiced lamb chops. However steak with mushroom sauce or chasseur or pepper sauce (all without cream) works a treat or some of those fabulous sausage dishes Cumberland-esque spicy ones; classic British toad-in-the-hole; Calf’s liver with Bacon, Caramelized onions and sherry; BBQ meats. For those with a decent butcher or a country estate (!) game birds like pheasant work well. On the cheese front Jarlsberg; Cacio di Bosco; Chèvre or a decent aged Gouda cheese (again not too soft). Even French Onion Soup is a winner.

Meet the winemaker - Richard Kershaw

  • He's a tip-off from Rod and Richard proved he is seriously wine savvy when he became a Master of Wine. Not bad for a man from Sheffield!
  • Angel funding gave Richard the jump his one-man business needed, allowing him to tap into South Africa's huge potential to make spectacular wines without hiking up the price.
  • Unlike the show-off wineries in South Africa, Richard dreams of owning a shed to make wine in. So you're not paying for fancy cellar doors, marble floors, and Michelin-starred restaurants. Just raw winemaking talent, great grapes, and a shed.
