Graciano is a Spanish variety generally used in Tempranillo-based blends from Rioja. The vines are typically low yielding but the wine that it produces shows a pronounced peppery nose with bright acid and chewy tannin. This vintage marks the fifth release of Samuel’s Gorge Graciano. As our vineyard finds its feet, the ‘18 Graciano has extra layers of complexity, is evermore complete and finely honed.
