Levantine Hill Samantha’s Paddock Melange 2015

75cl / 13%

“This is a moderately cool climate Bordeaux-style blend from steep, low-yielding vines that delivers the heady aromatics of blueberry and black currant compote, violet, pepper and medicinal herbs.

The palate is less broad and more linear, wound in taut, chalky tannins and lifted acidity. A chiseled, muscular wine that’s fresh but also seems to be showing a fair bit of bottle age.”

About the Levantine Hill Samantha’s Paddock Melange 2015

Known as the “impossible wine” because of the steepness of the land from which its fruit was grown, presence of underground, rocky seams and outcrops that were thought to be insurmountable. In keeping with the traditional varieties of Bordeaux, this wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

The Family Paddocks are the iconic heart of Levantine Hill. After transforming what was once just a steep, rocky hill into the perfect place to grow grapes, Elias Jreissati named each of the blocks of vines after the people closest to his heart – his wife Colleen and daughters Samantha, Melissa and Katherine.

The four wines that are created from the grapes grown on those blocks are all single vineyard wines, inspired by the Grand Cru wines of Burgundy and First Growths of Bordeaux. The Bordeaux blends use the same percentage of grape varieties as traditionally used in France. Colleen’s Paddock Pinot Noir, Samantha’s Paddock Mélange Traditionnel and Melissa’s Paddock Syrah are released at least four years after vintage, while Katherine’s Paddock Chardonnay is released at least three years after vintage. These wines are the best of the best and only a limited number of bottles are produced for each label each year.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Bright clear ruby
Nose: Brooding restrained fruit characters of red currant, blackberry, bramble, pink peppercorn and sage leaf with complexing savoury elements of clove, cedar and cigar box.
Palate: Suppleness on the palate combines with a defined ferrous character and flavours of berry compote, smoked meats, Szechuan pepper and cocoa nib. The silky texture winds through rustic yet regal tannins on the poised youthful palate. Goes well with red and white meats.

Awards: 90pts – Wine Enthusiast; 93pts – Campbell Mattinson-The Wine Front; 91pts – Decanter World Wine Awards

History of Levantine Hill

Levantine Hill is rated 5 red stars by James Halliday (Australian wine critic). Even more impressively, Huon Hooke rates them the 30th best winery in the country, ahead of Penfolds, Yangarra, Woodlands, Shaw, and Smith, Torbreck.

Levantine has superb vineyards and growers and a brilliant winemaker in Paul Bridgemen who was formerly the winemaker for Yarra Yering. Levantine’s lofty ambitions are well encapsulated by the following quote “We hope this estate will transcend man’s inevitable mortality and brief custodianship of all things material.

Fortunately, the proof is in the bottle as confirmed by Jeremy Oliver who says “Levantine Hill produces wines of European elegance and subtlety and its quality aspirations are frankly inspiring.
