Tempranillo 2020

Samuel’s Gorge. McLaren Vale. South Australia.

100% Tempranillo


Samuel’s Gorge Tempranillo 2020 er ung. Meget ung 🙂 Men har man tålmodighed bør man købe nogle stykker af de her og gemme væk i 1-2 år. For den har masser af potentiale. Potentiale til at blive et vidunderligt glas vin med en ultra brillant farve. Vi oplever hos The Wine Tree at Samuel’s Gorge vine generelt er en smule længere om at udvikle sig end hovedparten af vores andre vine. Til gengæld når de også ofte op på et niveau hvor få andre kan følge med. Så kan man væbne sig med tålmodighed, så vil man få vin der har et niveau langt over det prisen indikerer. Put this one down a while, and enjoy where it takes you. (Justin McNamee, winemaker)

Noter fra vinmageren

The undulating landscape of McLaren Vale, paired with the constant, regulating sea breeze and the hot dry summers, create the perfect growing conditions for Tempranillo. This Spanish grape is relatively new to our shores but it makes perfect sense here. Made in a style that is unique to the region, this vibrant, expressive wine is best enjoyed with good food and great friends.

The 2020 Tempranillo is a medium bodied, textural, juicy wine. It is spice laden and savoury, with aromas of sorrel, Mirabelle plum, forest fruits and cloves. It has an underlying earthiness that grounds the lighter, lifted notes of mulberry and cherry. The tannins are fine yet prominent and it has a bright, playful acidity.

The Samuel’s Gorge Tempranillo is juicy and fresh in its youth but it will evolve, developing further complexity with time in bottle. Put this one down a while, and enjoy where it takes you.

Pair this wine with charred Kangaroo, radicchio and pickled cherries.

Time in tomb: 8 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.”


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.
