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.
The grapes used to make this wine have been sourced from vineyards planted on the original Goss property in McLaren Vale.
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.
Due to the optimal ripening periods of February and March, vintage 2017 has delivered exceptional quality and balance.
This wine displays the varietal Cabernet Sauvignon characters; rich and generously loaded with blackberry and mulberry fruits and black fruits, well supported by oak spice and fine long tannins. This delicious, dense and fruit packed wine will complement a wide variety of meal choices, especially red meat, pasta and slow braised dishes.
