Thomas Goss Shiraz 2010

Thomas Goss was one of the pioneers of McLaren Vale, arriving with his family from England in 1849. He established a farm there, which is now home to some of the most famous vineyards of the region.
Some of the grapes that went into today's featured wine, Thomas Goss Shiraz 2010, come from the original Thomas Goss farmland. So, you ask, who is making Thomas Goss Shiraz if Thomas Goss lived in Australia in the 1800's? The answer is none other than Ben Riggs, proprietor of the famous Mr. Riggs wines, as well as flying winemaker and consultant to wineries around the world. Mr. Riggs has a long history of winemaking, and was one of many who helped expand the knowledge of US importers, distributors and buyers about the quality of Australian wines.
Anyway, back to the wine at hand, Thomas Goss Shiraz McLaren Vale 2010 received a phenomenal 91 Point rating from the Wine Spectator, which is exciting enough on its own. To put the icing on the cake, we are able to offer this wine to our customers for only $13.99 per bottle! A bargain if you ask me!
It wouldn't surprise me at all to see this wine on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 list that will come out in November, but I have a feeling that by that time there will be no more to go around! Since I don't believe in holding onto wines just in case they might make the list, here's your opportunity to jump on the Thomas Goss bandwagon right now, and have the wine already when everyone else realizes that they want it! Did I mention that the Wine Spectator also gave this wine the "Smart Buys" designation?? And shows the release price of the wine at $16??
Rated 92 Points by the Wine Spectator - Smart Buys - Thomas Goss Shiraz McLaren Vale 2010 - "Plush-textured and multi-layered, tdelivering a serious mouthful of blackberry, guava, cherry and black pepper flavors that persist into the expressive finish. Best from 2013 through 2022. 3,000 cases made."
I think that's enough said on this full-bodied Shiraz!
