Kaleidoscope Horizons 2014

Samuel’s Gorge. McLaren Vale. South Australia.

Grenache og Tempranillo

 

Flot, stor og dyb vin med masser af personlighed. Kaleidoscope Horizons 2014 er en vin af meget høj klasse, der med en mundfuld luft kan nydes nu men også har et usædvanligt godt lagringspotentiale. Fyrstelige dråber.

Senest bedømt i juni 2017.

 

Sammen med Mosaic of Dreams, er Kaleidoscope Horizons Samuel’s Gorges topvin. Vinene fra Samuel’s Gorge emmer af finesse, elegance og stemning. Man åbner ikke bare for en vin, men for en fortælling.

To smell is to see, to taste is to know. Samuel’s Gorge is a mosaic of dreams, with one principal philosophy, that of place…

(Justin McNamee, winemaker)

Noter fra vinmageren

Great wine should take you to a place. This wine takes me to that bluff – perched on top of a hillside, gazing out to the horizon, the charcoal pit is aglow. Aromas of sweet roasted beetroot and charred Pintxos morcilla leap from the glass, but it’s the subtlety of ironbark and earth; the Australian outback that really steals the show. The palate is filled with charred meat and charcuterie. This is a wine defined by its structure – gravelly and robust, this tannin will ensure longevity.

 

Fra vinskribenterne

One of those sit down and get comfy sorta wines. Give me more.

Sweet Grenache fruit gets my attention immediately. It’s enticing rather than distracting. Fresh raspberry and baked raspberry push through before the meaty Tempranillo fills it out. Blackberry fruit keeps the tempo fluent supported by dark chocolate and clove before a sustained finish.

I’d have a glass or three in relaxed company – it gives off that vibe that’s for sure.

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.
