This wine is rich and generously loaded with red fruits, black cherries and spice on the palate. The finish is long lasting, delicious, dense and fruit packed. 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, articularly Shiraz. Due to the optimal ripening periods during February and March, vintage 2013 has delivered exceptional quality and balance.
