Samuels Gorge 2013 Shiraz

$49.99

The ‘13 shows some engaging twists and turns; the swirl of smoke from a campfire in winter; the smouldering red gum and the dark smells of black coal. So much mid-palate weight and mouth-filling tannins with an emphasis on texture and freshness over fullness. It refuses to fade. A great Shiraz

Vintage:   An excellent 2013 growing season saw a warm, dry summer followed by a cool autumn which provided optimal growing conditions, especially for red wines.

Nose:   the nose has a potent lift of liquorice and blackberry fruits. The ‘13 shows some engaging twists and turns; the swirl of smoke from a campfire in winter; the smouldering red gum and the dark smells of black coal.

Palate:   In order to balance the natural sweetness of the mulberrys (a signature of the estate) the wine weaves in savoury of black olives and baccalà with ancient sticky balsamic.

Pairing:   Italian braised beef cheek with cannellini beans; a seemingly endless lunch with heavy drapery and any one of the Don’s.
