The Three Graces, of Greek mythology, beauty, joy and charm symbolise the essential character of Graceland Vineyards. Our flagship blend, Three Graces is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz.
The grapes are handpicked, wild yeast fermented in open cement tanks, and then moved to barrel for malolactic fermentation. After 14 months of maturation and careful barrel selection, blended and returned to select French barrels. 10 months later the wine is bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
Three Graces is always Cabernet dominant, but 2013 is slightly different, in that the three varietals are almost in equal share, with Cabernet just topping the others.
The cooler style Shiraz is not prominent at all, making for a seamless blend reminiscent of Bordeaux. Elegant, fine tannins, well suited for classic dining. Soft tannins making the wine accessible at an early age, but enough structure to keep for 10 years.
