Overview

The Shiraz grapes used to make this wine have been sourced from select vineyards in McLaren Vale including those planted on the original Goss property.

With dominant winter rainfall, warm, dry summers that are tempered by the proximity to the Gulf St. Vincent and low humidity, McLaren Vale has one of the most consistent climates in which to grow premium wine grapes.

From various Shiraz blocks grown on clay soils, parcels are vinified and matured separately. Harvest period was from 13th February until 2nd of March 2016.

Winery Tasting Notes

Deep crimson-purple; an archetypal McLaren Vale Shiraz, stacked to the rafters with juicy blackberry fruit.

This wine is rich and generously loaded with satsuma plum, black cherry and spice on the palate. Subtle French oak adds layers and complexity and the wine has great length with soft tannins. The finish is long lasting, delicious, dense and fruit packed.

Winery Profile

One of the original McLaren Vale pioneers, Thomas Goss (1810-1890), his wife Mary Ann (1813-1891) and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he established an iconic farming property, Ingleburne, now home to some of the McLaren Vale region's leading vineyards.

In 2010, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth, it was decided to release a range of affordable McLaren Vale red wines and Adelaide Hills white wines under the Thomas Goss label. These wines are a tribute to the persistence of Thomas Goss and his family's long contribution to our beloved region.
