Description

Justin McNamee going for a classically Spanish-inspired style of Graciano from McLaren Vale.

Justin looks to the old world for inspiration in all his wines, and the Graciano walks that path well. It shows the vibrant acidity and food-friendliness that has made this such a popular wine style.

It's firm with tannin but bright with fruit, a 'Joven' style and a tasty take on this wonderful Mediterranean variety.

The Graciano is a relatively new addition to the Samuel's Gorge range, but it already has a cult following - you'll see why at the first sip.

Graciano is a unique grape, known for its powerful aromatic range and its vibrant purple tones. As part of the Samuel’s Gorge line up, this wine sits in its own category, being a bit of a show stealer. Made from the fruit from two different vineyards, the wine team uses gentle, slow fermentation, over a period of up to three weeks, to create a wine with great aging potential, and complexity of flavour.

The 2022 Graciano is a bold, layered, and aromatic wine, full of flavour. The spice range is what is first apparent in this wine, with aromas of cassia bark, cigar box and earthy coriander seed. As you continue to swirl the glass, you will smell vibrant blueberry, balsamic strawberries and cocoa nibs. On the palate it has great length and acidity, showing more of that lively spice range and purple fruits.

Pair this with Jamaican jerk chicken or something equally full of flavour. This wine is no wallflower and will stand up to big flavour hits.

Samuel's Gorge

Samuel’s Gorge is one of McLaren Vale’s best-kept secrets. There, in his quiet neck of the woods, owner/winemaker Justin McNamee is on a mission to build “wines that are distinctly Australian with reference to the old world for texture, complexity and harmony.”

The Samuel's Gorge wines may be scarcely available but they are highly renowned. Shiraz and Grenache are considered his forté, but he makes stellar examples of Tempranillo, Graciano, Gamay and more. Justin works with some of McLaren Vale's top vineyards, preferring to entrust the region's top growers to do what they do best, while he concentrates on crafting the wines together and greeting customers at his much-loved cellar door.

These are wines with a distinct personality and a rustic feel, from an adored cult SA producer.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
