In 2000, a group of enthusiasts who shared a passion for making and imbibing in wine were inspired to breathe life into an old, run down operation in the small western district of Gomersal. The forty two acres of low yielding vines now deliver a limited yield of Shiraz each vintage, a precious harvest of grapes exhibiting remarkable concentration and intensity of flavour. Working amongst the vines and sampling berries as the growing season reaches climax, picking never commences until the team are completely satisfied that complete ripeness has been achieved.
The Gomersal philosophy is to make wines which are the purest and most honest reflection of the vineyard. Minimal intervention, judicious use of oak and maximum flavour are the goals. A range of soils vary dramatically throughout the property. Clay over calcerte and slate bedrock, moving to more weathered slate at the bottom of an ancient glacier. Over the hill, soils are deep, sandy loam and black clays. East to west slopes with predominantly north to south rows, bush vines grow east to west on a south facing slope. This tapestry of terroir infuses subtle complexities in the grapes, which are retained throughout the vinification process and ultimately contribute to the splendour of the finished wines.
TASTING NOTES
Deep scarlet, purple hued. Mint and fennel characters to the bouquet, aniseed and mulberry, bitumen and soot. Chocolate and licorice aromas lead to a robust palate of blackberry, black olives and cherry heering. Gomersal finishes with lovely balanced tannins and firm acidity. Match with char grilled roo fillets, marinated backstrap or saltbush hogget.

More About Gomersal Wines
In 2000, a group of characters joined forces to breathe life back into an old, run down Barossa winery in the small western district of Gomersal
Led by Barry, Baz to those who know him, and Gabriela White, they shared a passion for both the production and consumption of wine. The winery, now known as Gomersal Wines, was resurrected with the establishment of a new vineyard in 2001, opening of a new cellar door in 2005 and function room in 2006, and of course, production of a range of quality wines. The vineyard, just across the road from cellar door, consisting of 42 acres of Shiraz, and 8 acres of Grenache and Mataro supplies the winery with rich quality fruit with which to make wine. The unique cellar door is a true Australian experience, with eucalyptus trees and native plants throughout the grounds, magnificent red gum tables and pink gum bar, and truly Australian artwork covering the walls. The Barrel Room provides a wonderful and versatile setting for functions of all styles, including weddings, birthdays, conferences, launches and art exhibitions. Gomersal»
