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.
Powerful, rich and decadent this is old school Barossa Shiraz at its brilliant best.
Matured in a combination of new and aged American oak hogsheads for 3 years. Magnificent dense inky black colour with a very deep dark red black hue. Potent scents of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolate waft from the glass, intoxicating the olfactory senses. Dark plum, ample amounts of vanillin oak, mocha and spice then chime in. Rich, powerful and voluptuous in its texture, the palate is drenched with cascading waves of lush blackberry, liquorice and black cherry fruit. Lurking in the background are elements of dark chocolate, spicy vanillin oak and subtle notions of peppered fennel. Massively sized, the lavish fruit for the most part cloaks a ripe chewy tannin structure which provides plenty underlying support. Superb concentration and depth with a very long, decadent finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
