Winemaker's Notes:

Deep dense dark and brooding in color with a rim of purple/black in the glass. The nose shows cassis and is loaded with savoury spices. The palate is generous with excellent tannin structure and lovely cassis fruits. The wine is big and rich, yet surprisingly elegant and a very long lasting after palate. Gentle dusty tannins on the finish.
My Notes:

About Gotham:

Gotham is a new project by Bruce Clugston, a veteran in the Australian wine industry. In 2004 Bruce and his wife, Fiona White Bruce, visited New York City and had such a great time that they decided to use New York's nickname as "Gotham City" as part of their wine label. Bruce draws on 30 years of experience in the wine industry and long held desire as a former wine retailer to create a product of exceptional value that is approachable in youth as well as years down the line. Gotham wines are created from fruit sourced from the iconic wine growing regions of Australia. The Gotham wines has gradually added to their regional varieties, only producing when they come across a fruit source that they are proud to put under their label. They use the talents of some of the best winemakers in South Australia to put together a range of wines showcasing the best regions and varieties.
