Samuel's Gorge Grenache 2020
Grenache is a signature grape of both this McLaren Vale and Samuel's Gorge. It rightly holds a very special place in their hearts. They source Grenache grapes from a range of heritage vineyards spread across the windswept, coastal region. Fruit from each vineyard is separately fermented then matured in small batches before being expertly blended.
This complex and exuberant 2020 Grenache captivates from the first swirl. Notes of fresh raspberry, cranberry and red currant weave with the perfumed scent of musk. Blood orange and cassia bark round out the nose and flow through to the palate.
This wine has a freshness and lift to it, making it the perfect accompaniment to a languid summer evening. Pair this with Vietnamese sugar cane prawn rice paper rolls, full of fresh herbs and served with tangy dipping sauce.
