Topvinene Mosaic of Dreams og Kaleidoscope Horizons 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…

Noter fra vinmageren

A boisterous nose of stewed wild strawberries, a freshly oiled balustrade, mildly scented by wild fennel seeds – foraged from the roadside. A freshly baked orange and poppy seed cake straight from the oven. Fine boned, silky tannins glide across the palate, dancing with the fruit in seamless fashion. This wine is elegant and graceful but with a bucket load if intrigue.

Once again there is method to our madness. The blends were crafted with a respect for the historic relevance of the varieties expressed through the equally arid landscape of McLaren Vale. We bear witness to the grace of the Southern Rhone – Grenache, Mourvèdre and Shiraz – in the sophistication and subtlety of the Mosaic of Dreams. This wine can take you to the epicentre of the glorious Rhone with everlasting fields of wild sage, sunflowers and lavender and endless blue skies. We foster finesse over power in this wine. Concentration is only one measure of presence: the everlasting reward is in the discovery of nuances as the aromatics unfold as fleeting as a kiss. The power lies in the perfume.

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.
