Schubert Gosling Shiraz

For those who are looking for a big Barossa Shiraz at an affordable price, the 2007 Schubert Gosling Shiraz might be the ticket.

The flavour is bright, mainly redcurrant, and the fruit is ripe. I believe the fruit stems from fairly young wines and is of good quality. Notwithstanding the bigness of the wine, it has a good structure and is well balanced.

I really enjoyed the first glass, but was a bit reluctant for a second because of the wine's boldness. However, it is the right wine for the current temperatures.

The Gosling is the Schubert's second label, following the Goose-yard Shiraz, both from fruit grown near the famous Roennfeldt Road.
