Artfully alluding to Châteauneuf‑du-Pape in southeastern France, Nine Popes asserts itself as one of Barossa's most distinctive and fruit-complex wines. Aged primarily in 25% new and seasoned French oak barriques, it seamlessly harmonizes the essence of each grape variety. The wine is distinguished by exotic, musky notes, alongside aromas of mulberry, plum, and game, framed by ripe yet vibrant tannins and an exquisite richness of fruit.

Many critics score this Barossa Valley wine highly.

Critic tasting note: (2004 vintage) "Shows the wonderfully silky side of Grenache—the main part of the blend—in its diaphanous, delicate texture that manages to be soft but not too soft, beautifully framing flavors of cherries, spice and cola. Long on the finish, trailing away slowly and elegantly. Drink now–2015." - 93/100, Wine Enthusiast

GSM matured for 26 months on lees in French barriques (25% new). Always a trailblazer, and remains so today with the vibrancy of its multifaceted, predominantly red-fruited palate; it is willowy, yet firm, and has prodigious length, tannin and oak precisely placed and balanced.
