The tiny Gomersal estate sits on some tough vineyard country, where both vines and viticulturalist are forced to struggle. Typically yields are no more than 1.5 tonnes per acre. Owner/viticulturalist, Barry White gets his recompense in his Shiraz.

The quality of the fruit transforms into an explosive flavour experience under the contract supervision of Barossa maestro, Ben Glaetzer.
The vineyard's unusual name came about after the outbreak of the First World War when the distrust of all things German reached such paranoiac proportions, that South Australian towns began to change their German sounding names to 'more respectable' English titles. 'New Mecklenburg' became 'Gomersal' – a name derived from a West Yorkshire village. Ironically, no one bothered to research the origin of the title, which turned out to be as German as the vineyard's founders. Outstanding opaque, super saturated, black crimson red colour, with very deep black crimson hue. The nose displays lifted aromas of liquorice and blackberry followed by some confectionary and spice notes. Full bodied the palate delivers very generous rich ripe flavours of blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and spice with some blackpepper on the back palate. Velvet smooth tannins with a plush texture. Long aftertaste of ripe blackberry, liquorice, dark chocolate and blackpepper.
