Characteristics of The Smuggler's Boot GSM

The Smuggler’s Boot GSM is a barrel-aged red wine made by Richard Kershaw with the Mourvèdre and Garnacha Tinta red varieties in the Western Cape South Coast South African denomination.

Richard Kershaw, Master of Wine with WSET (Wine and Spirirts Education Trust), has spent his life travelling around the world to find the best wine regions. In 1999, he arrived in South Africa to see this incredible place for himself. That is when he decided to make his own wines using international varieties in the Elgin Valley, one of the coolest parts of South Africa. Among his collection is The Smuggler’s Boot, a range of wines that launched in 2014 and are named after a time of trade restrictions, when producers had to smuggle in vine cuttings and hid them in Wellington boots to do so.

The Smuggler’s Boot GSM comes from vines located in the towns of Wellington, Swartland and Stellenbosch. Being close to the sea and protected by the mountains that surround them, the cool air slows down the concentration of sugars in the berries. They use respectful agriculture and the production is usually low yield. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness. 

In the winery, the characteristics of The Smuggler’s Boot GSM grapes are preserved as much as possible. To do this, they use breathable plastic eggs for spontaneous fermentation. The wine then ages in oak barrels to add complexity but keep it as smooth as possible.

The Smuggler’s Boot GSM is a selected blend of high-quality grapes that are grown and made in one of the coolest parts in South Africa. This results in freshness, complexity and length.

Tasting notes The Smuggler's Boot GSM

The Smuggler’s Boot GSM 2016 is a concentrated red wine with wonderful aromas of red and black fruit, spicy notes and sugary touches. On the palate it is fresh, rich and meaty. It has fine tannins with flavours of raspberry and velvety molasses that linger to the end.
