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 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.
Opulently textured and packed with rich dark fruit flavours this is Classic Old School Barossa Shiraz at its best.
Matured in a combination of new and aged American oak hogsheads for 3 years. Totally opaque midnight black colour with a deep very dark crimson red black hue. Alluring aromatics of liquorice, dark chocolates, dark plum and mocha waft from the glass followed by underlying spicy vanillin oak notes. Full bodied with a soft, supple mouthfeel the palate boasts rich dark chocolate, ripe blackberry and liquorice flavours overlaid by mocha with vanillin oak and spice on the finish. Silky smooth tannins with a very long finale of dark chocolate, liquorice, mocha, toasty vanillin oak and spice. A big, velvety, chocolate infused Barossa Shiraz.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
