History & Philosophy
One of the original McLaren Vale pioneers, Thomas Goss (1810-1890), his wife Mary Ann (1813-1891) and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields, Goss established an iconic farming property, 'Ingleburne' in McLaren Vale, which is now home to some of the region's leading vineyards. Descendants of Thomas Goss then ventured into the neighbouring Adelaide Hills, where the cool climate was perfect for white varietals. Today these wines are a tribute to the persistence of Thomas Goss and his family's long contribution to the region.
Vineyard & Climate
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 ideally suited to growing premium grapes; Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon being the stand-outs.
The unequivocally cool climate of the Adelaide Hills combined with very old podzolic soils of low to moderate fertility makes for ideal growing conditions.The region enjoys an enviable reputation for magnificent white grapes.
