Packed with Flavour
Restless Farm 'The Goat' Padthaway Shiraz 2015
Region: Padthaway, SA
The Goat by Nicholas Bourke may well be the most favoured wine we sell. The fifth was released on December 14th 2015 and I did not bother mentioning it after February 2016. Padthaway is well north of Coonawarra and thus warmer and I enjoy the flavours of Shiraz which are fuller and riper than those nearer the coast. The full characters Padthaway wines made them popular from the first releases in the late 1970s though today wines labelled as Padthaway are uncommon.
Rather like Langhorne Creek the wines of Padthaway end up in the multi-regional blends made by our large wine groups. This is not my way and I like to sell the regional identity or even better the exact location. The Goat is a creation of the talented Bourke and this is the sixth vintage we have stocked. I know Glug customers will find the style most appealing.
