THOMAS GOSS ADELAIDE HILLS 2012 CHARDONNAY
A pioneer farmer and holder of note, Thomas Goss, his wife Mary and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he acquired sections of farming land between McLaren Vale and Willunga which are now home to some of the region's leading vineyards. A beautiful reflection of the Hills region and a fitting tribute to visionary farming families like those of Thomas Goss.
THE WINEMAKER USED WORDS SUCH AS "DELICIOUS" & "CRISP" WHEN DESCRIBING THIS WINE
IN time, descendants of Thomas Goss ventured into the neighbouring Adelaide Hills, the very cool climate premium region from which fruit for this fresh, clean and beautifully balanced Chardonnay is sourced.
The unequivocally cool climate and soils of low to moderate fertility are ideal for growing conditions. Due to the optimal ripening periods during February and March, vintage 2012 has delivered exceptional quality and balance.
This wine displays delicious, crisp stone fruits combined with hints of lemon blossom and skins of lime. Thomas Goss Chardonnay will compliment a wide variety of meal choices, especially those with an ocean association.
