Samuel's Gorge 2016 Shiraz 3L Jeroboam
1 of just 10 bottles made
We fell in love with the 2016 Shiraz instantly - so much so we had to do something special. This 3L Jeroboam of Shiraz is sure to impress now, and for years to come.
The weather of the 2016 vintage is in this wine: cool nights and long, warm days provide tannins of elegance and longevity.
We see vibrant, vivid colour and warm earth characters, so distinctive of the blue arcing skies and cooling breezes of McLaren Vale. Scents of tar, leather and liquorice abound, with tones of dark, bitter chocolate and coffee. Zipping acidity and brightness on the palate linger, as the tannins pull out flavour alongside texture.
Enjoy this wine in the sun with burnished eggplant, pomegranate seeds, lashings of lemon and piles of parsley. Those who decide to cellar will be rewarded far into the future; this one’s a stayer.
