Shiraz is Australia’s favourite variety, and its big, bold and full-bodied reds from regions such as the Barossa Valley have helped put Australia on the world wine map. Its spiritual home though is France’s Rhône Valley, where it is known as Syrah and produces wines typically lighter in body and alcohol. Sometimes Australian Shiraz is labelled as Syrah to indicate its specific style.
Sourced from selected vineyards in McLaren Vale, including the original Goss property. Dark red in colour with aromas of violets, dark berries, pepper with hints of vanilla. The palate is rich and generous. It is loaded with flavours of cherries, blackberries and spice, with a slight sweetness of toasty oak. The finish is long, dense and delicious with a balance of ripe tannins and a fruit-packed core.
