Shiraz is wildly popular in Australia, after having been introduced here in the mid 1830’s. It is currently South Australia’s most widely planted grape variety and has a strong and vocal fanbase here in the McLaren Vale.
At Samuel’s Gorge we strive to make a Shiraz of balance, texture, nuance and complexity. This is achieved by using several unique vineyards from the region and with the considered use of whole bunch and old French oak.
The 2022 release has aromas of star anise, blackberry and plum. On the palate; black cherries, pepper and spice with a concentration on delivering harmony.
It is drinking beautifully in its youth, however yet will age stunningly, if you let it.
We recommend that you enjoy this wine with a meal cooked over flame. Try barbequed lamb served with a colourful summer salad of grilled peaches, greens and roasted almonds.
