Shiraz is endlessly fascinating; there are many interpretations of this great
grape from region to region, producer to producer. The endless blue skies,
bright, white light and ancient soils of McLaren Vale provide us with the ideal
platform for creating this harmoniously complete wine.
The aromatics have what is now a trademark Samuel’s Gorge spectrum at its
core. While black bramble fruits immediately engage you; it is essentially
savoury, with hints of black pepper, worn leather and dried sage that weave
their way through the olfactory like the curling tendrils of the wild sweat pea
that adorns the winery garden in the cooler months.
Detailed flavours mirror the aromatics, giving rise to plump dark fruit and
baking spice. The mid-palate weight is beautiful, and the tannin is fine and
mouth-filling. Layers of texture, freshness and intrigue - beautifully stitched
together into a silky cloak of flavour.
Enjoy with kangaroo fillet and oxtail ragu, served with broad beans and
heirloom carrots with caraway.
