Named after pioneer farmer and landholder of note, Thomas Goss, this label has won over many Aussie Shiraz fans.
We could describe this label as a bit of a 'sleeper', quietly gaining a loyal following with people loving the generous, warming character and flavours of the wine. This new release 2019 vintage steps that up a bit more, ticking plenty of boxes – deep dark colour, flavour packed palate that almost feels silky, velvety with the warmth of 14.5% alcohol but balanced out by a fine layer of tannins on the back. Very satisfying.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This wine is rich and generously loaded with satsuma plum, 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 & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Sweetly fruited and immediately appealing, showing black/blueberry, cocoa, cedar and warm spice aromas on the nose. The palate delivers excellent weight and fleshy texture, combined with layers of delectable flavours, finishing long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2029."
5 Stars The Wine Writer (2019 Vintage)
"Deep ruby with a slight purple hue. A deliciously complex nose with layers of red and dark fruit, raspberry, red plum, boysenberry and cassis with a sprinkling of black pepper. The palate is where you find the spice rack, beautiful oak derived spice combined with pepper and juicy, ripe dark fruit. The soft tannins and dash of vigorous acidity add structure and a freshness to the wine and leave you with a long, spice driven finish."
