Shiraz 2014

Samuel’s Gorge. McLaren Vale. South Australia.

100 % Shiraz

 

Skøn velafbalanceret Shiraz leveret med masser af saft, kraft, dybde og elegance. Vinen er stilistisk set en flot frugtdrevet Shiraz med en god syre og et næsten Grenache-agtigt præg, dog med en dyb farve, en kompleks duft og klassiske smagsnoter af blåbær, solbær, brombær og mørk chokolade. Et fornemt glas vin med masser af smoothness nu og liv og potentiale til at udvikle sig endnu mere de næste år.

Samuel’s Gorges vine oser af finesse og klasse.

Noter fra vinmageren

Brace yourself for a cascade of endless flavours; a matrix of diverse McLaren Vale geological selections drive by our homestead block delivering black fruit and mulberries in spade loads. Hello Monty!

We have turned our hands at more Shiraz than any other single grape variety. It is a variety that reins over our province and for that matter, most regions in South Australia. Its magnitude in accessibility ought not to be confused with magnitude of fruit flavour. It has charmed the world because it delivers concentration but concentration on a multitude of levels.

Imagine an artisan, small batch coffee bean roast house: a mixture of freshly roasted beans, dusty hessian bags, hints of the darkest chocolate and the pull of the espresso shot that simultaneously entrances and enlivens the mind. Then the intrigue of the animal: blinding herds of bison migrating between foraging sites across the Midwestern plains, a rising sea of dust, sweat and bravado. Detailed and layered with cascades of flavour that mirror the aromatics. So much mid-palate weight and mouth-filling tannins with an emphasis on texture and freshness over fullness. It refuses to fade.

Tomb: 10 + 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.
