Description

"An instantly appealing shiraz; the inviting bouquet shows dark fruit richness together with nuances of vanilla, spice, cedar and cocoa. The palate delivers beautifully rounded mouthfeel and excellent fruit weight, backed by velvety texture and polished tannins. Soothing and very comforting. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2019

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.

The 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 and 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.

In the 1840s, a local Farmers & Stockholders Club was formed to bring together the farmers and merchants of the burgeoning colony. On their agenda were many interesting items ranging from high wage costs and improved cropping practices.Vines were a part of the make-up of the agricultural and horticultural pursuits of the district and to conclude Club meetings, wine was drunk to toast ‘prosperity to the region’.
