Graciano 2016

Samuel’s Gorge. McLaren Vale. South Australia.

100% Graciano

 

Samuel’s Gorge Graciano 2016 er fantastisk vellavet og helt sin egen. Mørk i farven, super frisk krydret næse og med nuancer af skovjordbær, granatæble, træ, abrikoser og citrusfrugter. En vin der hviler i sig selv.

Noter fra vinmageren

The 2016 Graciano is boisterous and vibrant with lifted aromatics, juicy blueberries, tart cranberry and poached plum. The fruit-spectrum is supported by a savoury twist of hazelnut, cashew and a creamy lees-effect.
There is an exotic spice explosion with star anise, five spice, hints of green pickled tomatoes and creamy avocado. Its aroma is reminiscent of an old farm cellar where pickle jars fill the shelves. Love it!

 

Fra vinskribenterne

Stretch you interest levels a little further and be prepared to be rewarded. A smooth and seductive wine from a variety not that often seen standing on its own two feet in Australia.

Claudia at the cellar door tells me this is running out the door with only a few dozen left. I’m not surprised to be honest.

Dive into aromas of licorice, violets and blue fruits to seduce the senses. Juicy fruit is framed by Asian five spice in the mouth wrapping its arms around you slowly in a welcoming embrace. A little drying, its sapping with chalky feels to finish. The juicy factor lures you back for more ensuring large pours and big smiles are the result. A big thumbs up.

Drink now to five years.

Om Samuel’s Gorge

Samuel’s Gorge er måske det smukkest beliggende winery, vi var på i Australien. Alt samles ved Samuel’s Gorge. Navnet Gorge, der betyder kløft, beskriver godt indtrykket af Samuel’s Gorge, der som på et knivsæg balancerer mellem kløften til den rå Onkaparinga National Park og skråningen og vidderne mod havet og civilisationen. Her mødes det rå og voldsomme med det kultiverede og sofistikerede. Netop sådan er vinene fra Samuel’s Gorge.
Selve cellar door’en byder på en udsigt som få over nationalparken, udsigt over smukke vinmarker kombineret med aura fra de historiske bygninger fra 1853. Man bliver fortryllet med det samme. Stedet kan man desværre ikke tage med sig hjem, men det kan man med vinene. Samuel’s Gorge er stedet de andre vinsteder anbefaler! Vi fik selv Samuel’s Gorge anbefalet ud af få fra Greenock Creek i Barossa Valley. Samuel’s Gorge tiltrækker sig beundring alle vegne. Med rette. Winemaker Justin McNamee er en personlighed, der sætter sine spor i historien. Den Sydney’ske vinskribent Mike Bennie beskriver Justin McNamee således: “There’s bits ‘n’ pieces seemingly everywhere, but within the chaos is a magnificent winemaker orchestrating through minimal intervention, some of the Vale’s most exciting wines.”

History

Samuel’s Gorge is a mosaic of dreams, with one principal philosophy, that of place.

Justin McNamee established Samuel’s Gorge in 2003 in a farm shed built in 1853 overlooking the Onkaparinga River National Park located in the Seaview subregion of McLaren Vale. The Samuel’s Gorge label is an impression of the rugged landscape that is viewed from the winery.
A wines’ style is steered by the soil in which the vine grows, the vintage conditions and the imagination of a winemaker. The soils of the region vary dramatically across the McLaren Vale basin that then opens to the coast in the west. Specialising in four key varietals Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre and Tempranillo, grapes are strategically sourced from a range of sites and soils in order to achieve great depth and complexity of flavour.

The wines of Samuel’s Gorge are hand crafted wines that are distinctly Australian with reference to the old world for texture, complexity and harmony. Having great patience, the fermentations of each parcel of fruit are long and slow in open slate fermenters which date back 100 years. The grapes are pressed off using traditional basket press methods with the wines being transferred to oak to mature. These many components are then blended together to achieve harmony within each of the Samuel’s Gorge wines.

The wines of Samuel’s Gorge represent the personality of the maker and are driven by their nose, texture, silkiness and intrigue. There is a common rustic nature supporting the fruit drive and natural richness in all three wines. Ultimately we present wines that are great to drink and yet have structural support to ensure that they cellar well.

Rødvin. Australien.
