Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 93
Australian Wine Companion
Deep crimson-purple; an archetypal McLaren Vale shiraz, stacked to the rafters with juicy blackberry fruit, dark chocolate, licorice and well-balanced and integrated ripe tannins, oak submerged in the fruit. Classy packaging a plus. Drink or cellar.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Plush-textured and multi-layered, delivering a serious mouthful of blackberry, guava, cherry and black pepper flavors that persist into the expressive finish. Best from 2013 through 2022. Smart Buy
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
An old-fashioned, iron-fisted Shiraz made by Ben Riggs, this starts off black, brightening to warm red fruit in the finish. It feels substantial, melding savory notes of roots and herbs with sunny fruit. For a mutton chop.

Thomas Goss, McLaren Vale, Australia
Image of winery
One of the original McLaren Vale pioneers, Thomas Goss, his wife Mary and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he established an iconic farming property in McLaren Vale which is now home to some of the region’s leading vineyards. These wines are a tribute to Thomas Goss's contribution to our beloved region.

McLaren Vale has an unrivalled reputation in Australia and indeed the world, for constantly producing first-class wines. It has one of the most consistent, Mediterranean-style climates in which to grow premium wine grapes.

The unequivocally cool climate of the Adelaide Hills and very old podsolic soils of low to moderate fertility make for ideal growing conditions. This gives the region an enviable and growing reputation for magnificent white grapes.

McLaren Vale

View all wine

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract and alcohol, with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style, as are ripe, tropical-fruited Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
