Hello again! After an absolutely freezing weekend here in London it's nice to see some sun! I could go for a nice glass of something or other... a Riesling, perhaps?
One of the original McLaren Vale pioneers, Thomas Goss (1810-1890), his wife Mary Ann (1813-1891) and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he established an iconic farming property, Ingleburne, now home to some of the McLaren Vale region's leading vineyards.
In 2010, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth, it was decided to release a range of affordable McLaren Vale red wines and Adelaide Hills white wines under the Thomas Goss label. These wines are a tribute to the persistence of Thomas Goss and his family's long contribution to our beloved region.

"Light yellow. Spicy pear and green apple scents show very good clarity and a zesty mineral topnote. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering lively citrus and orchard fruit flavors with a touch of honeysuckle. Closes dry and long, with excellent clarity and building spiciness."
-Josh Raynolds 90/100 Points
