Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro; three grape varieties that have long flourished in the Barossa Valley so much so that G.S.M. has come to be known as the ‘Barossa Blend’.

These three grape varieties blended in the right way can produce a beautifully balanced wine that suits most palates and most occasions. But who does the best Barossa Blend?

Here at 1918 Bistro and Grill, we will be offering our guests the opportunity to vote for their favourite Barossa Blend.

An expert panel of wine judges have done a blind tasting and come up with a top 10 of the Barossa’s best G.S.M’s.

These 10 wines will be available for tasting over the weekend (Jan 15-17 2021).

Enjoy a wine flight of all 10 wines and indulge in a 1918 Winemakers platter to share. Guests will vote for their favourite blends. At the end of the weekend a Barossa Blend Challenge winner will be crowned.
