If you are looking for a hot tip when visiting McLaren Vale, do yourself a favour and make the journey to Samuel's Gorge. The cellar door looks out on one of the region's most stunning vistas and the brilliance of the wines only magnify the experience. This is winemaker Justin McNamee's tribute to the Shiraz grape. Shiraz, he says, "reins over our province and for that matter, most regions in South Australia. Its magnitude in accessibility ought not to be confused with the magnitude of fruit flavour. It has charmed the world because it delivers concentration but concentration on a multitude of levels." It's a wine built around texture and balance, not out-and-out power. A more rustic and earthy representation of this famous coupling of variety and place. This is one of McLaren Vale's best-kept secrets.

What it Tastes Like

This is a silky, slippery Shiraz that oozes sweet red plum and blackberry flavours. It's super fragrant, a perfumed Shiraz from this part of the world. Plums and cherries dipped in dark chocolate. It's shapely and well proportioned. Muscular and toned. It's ribbed with sheets of chalky tannin but the suppleness of the fruit makes it so inviting. Great release. Good to go now but would look great with a little age.
