2004 Samuel's Gorge Shiraz
"Fashioned from 40-year old vines, the opaque purple-tinged 2004 Shiraz reveals classic blackberry and cassis characteristics interwoven with notions of licorice and smoke. A meaty constitution offers density, richness, and plenty of fruit, glycerin, and extract. The richest of this trio, it should age gracefully for a decade or more given its impeccable balance." -91 Points - Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
"We havenât varied our source blocks since our first release of the Shiraz. I am more than ever inspired by the combination of flavours we are achieving from our wonderful growers. The Homestead Block has really found itâs feet and balance of fruit to canopy, consistently producing wines of amazing poise and grace. The subtle nuances from all the other sites give detail to both the aromatics and palate." -Winery
"At Samuel's Gorge I am looking to collate the tools and experience that I have gathered over the years to craft wines with focus, specialising in three key varietals that I think excel in McLaren Vale; Grenache, Shiraz and Tempranillo."
"The barn from which I work was built in 1853 and is positioned on a ridge top that runs east/west on the southern lip of the Onkaparinga River National Park. Dramatic Australian wilderness greets me every morning on the way to the barn." -Justin McNamee
2006 Kangarilla Road Shiraz
"Firm in texture, showing a sweetness and suppleness under the tannins that lets the racy blackberry, cherry and spice flavors come through beautifully. The flavors last on the deftly balanced finish. Best from 2011 through 2017." -90 Points Wine Spectator (09/09)
"Vibrant and full of juicy dark fruits, with a telltale sign of chocolate in the background; always terrific value." -91 Points James Halliday (02/08)
"Aromas of spicy mulberry conserve followed by a smooth mix of earthy black and red berry fruits on the mid and back palate. They all combine beautifully with the abundance of soft tannins." -Winery
"2006 vintage was a season of challenges with mixed weather conditions. Heavy spring rains in 2005 set the vines up well for the growing season and an early onset of a mild Summer followed. A cooler than normal February led to a bout of warm weather in early March resulting in excellent ripening conditions for our Shiraz."
"The wine was fermented in traditional open fermenters with heading board systems and in static open fermenters using gentle cap management techniques. The pressed wine was aged in a combination of 25% new French and American oak complemented with an even mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4 year old oak."
"The major percentage of this wine is from our McLaren Flat vineyards. These vineyards located at the northern part of the foothills ripen later than other sub-regions resulting in 'cooler climate' spicy aromatic dark berry driven wines with intense mid to back palate presence and an abundance of soft velvety tannins."
"These wines tend to develop best in French oak, however second and third use American oak also provide great depth. The second component is sourced from both the Blewitt Springs and Seaview areas where soils range mostly deep sands to red earth on limestone."
"The resultant wines display spicy bold dark plum characters very important as a nuance to the 2006 wine. The final component is from a vineyard in the Sellicks sub-region which is very close to the sea. Shiraz ripens early here also with very low yields; the wines have herbaceous characters with firm Cabernet like tannins." -Winery
