SKU: SAMGOSHZ20
Shiraz is deeply woven into the fabric of McLaren Vale, becoming an icon of the region. Sourced from the Seaview Ridge region, along with 10% from Blewitt Springs, across 4 vineyards, with multiple picks. The 2020 vintage was low yielding but the vines weren’t as stressed as the 2019 which came on the back of two drought vintages. Riley highlights vine health being key in 2020 offering a little more refinement this year. Hand picked, low slow ferment over 3 to 4 weeks. 10% whole bunch used. Elevage in 20% new French oak, from a selection of coopers for 12-18months. A passion for Grenache sourced from the highly regarded sandy sub region of Blewitt Springs has helped Samuel’s Gorge firmly position themselves as one of the best producers of this variety in particular.
