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, particularly Shiraz. The wine made by Ben Riggs and his winemaking team, this wine has a long, soft and juicy palate and lush mouthfeel, bursting with blackberry, blueberry jam and liquorice. This wine guarantees a true Australian Shiraz experience best enjoyed over the next 7 years.
Thomas Goss Shiraz
One of the original McLaren Vale pioneers, Thomas Goss, his wife Mary and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he established an iconic farming property in McLaren Vale which is now home to some of the region’s leading vineyards. This wine is a tribute to Thomas Goss’s contribution to The Vale.
