Tasting Notes
"Bright purple. Deep, smoke-tinged aromas of dark berries, licorice and dried flowers. Chewy cassis and bitter cherry flavors are sharpened by juicy acidity and gain sweetness with air, picking up a brighter red fruit character. Finishes on a gently sweet note, with very good spicy persistence and supple tannins. This lineup of wines was made by peripatetic old-timer Ben Riggs"

The Wine
"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. Due to the optimal ripening periods during February and March, vintage 2010 has delivered exceptional quality and balance.

The Story 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 regions leading vineyards. This wine is a tribute to Thomas Gosss contribution to our beloved region.

Wine MADE by Ben Riggs and his winemaking team, this wine has a long, soft and juicy palate and lush mouth feel, bursting with blackberry, blueberry jam and liquorices. This wine guarantees a true Australian Shiraz experience best enjoyed over the next 7 years." ~ Winery notes

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.

In 1993, Tony Parkinson purchased 37 acres of original Goss farming land which had been planted to vines in 1991. This was to become the Malpas Road Vineyard. In 1996 more original Goss land was purchased, planted and named Goss Corner Vineyard.

In 1998, Keith Rowland, great-great-grandson of Thomas Goss sold the Ingleburne homestead property to Tony Parkinson to convert to cellars for Penny's Hill, from which Thomas Goss wines would later be sold. This purchase reunited the original Thomas Goss section (80 acres) of farming land.

These wines, crafted by winemaker Ben Riggs, are a tribute to Thomas Goss's contribution to our beloved region. McLaren Vale has an unrivalled reputation in Australia and indeed the world, for constantly producing first-class wines. It has one of the most consistent, Mediterranean-style climates in which to grow premium wine grapes. The unequivocally cool climate of the Adelaide Hills and very old podsolic soils of low to moderate fertility make for ideal growing conditions. This gives the region an enviable and growing reputation for magnificent white grapes.
