Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"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.
A pioneer farmer and landholder of note, Thomas Goss, his wife Mary and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he acquired sections of farming land between McLaren Vale and Willunga which are now home to some of the region’s leading vineyards."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Richly fruited and delectably expressed, this is instantly appealing on the nose showing black/blueberry, plum, cedar, floral and cocoa characters, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that is plump and silky. The wine delivers excellent fruit power and purity, combined with subtle spicy complexity, finishing persistent and velvety. At its best: now to 2025."

Yvonne Lorkin, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Boasting more bling on its grill than Lil Wayne or Lil Bow Wow, or in fact any of the “Lil’s”, this shiraz has clearly shown it’s at the top of its game as far as wine competitions are concerned. Inky dark, glossy in the glass and bursting with boysenberry and blackcurrant characters on the nose and palate, it’s the dusting of pepper, eucalypt and redcurrant that add complexity to its long, spicy and luscious."
