Hidden Barossa Valley Classic
Gomersal is an interesting story. In our 30 years in the industry, I had not heard of them or tasted their wines - so its a good reminder about just how wines and producers there is in Australia (est. 2200 plus).
About the Winery
The actual location of the winery is in the town of Gomersal on the north western edge of the Barossa Valley. The winery was originally established in 1887 by the Fromm Family and was known as Chateau Rosevale. In 2000 a group of friends joined forces to breathe life into the old and run down winery and so began Gomersal Wines.
The site is planted predominately with red grape varieties and produces classic Barossa full flavoured wines.
About the Wine
This Cabernet Sauvignon has classic red berry, spice and dark chocolate on the nose, rich and full flavoured on the palate with cherries, raspberries and spice, pleasantly medium bodied (meaning you can drink it without falling asleep an hour later) soft tannins and well balanced finish. Great wine from a region better known for Shiraz.
Bring out the lamb shanks or slow cooked brisket.
