Restless Farm 'The Goat' Padthaway Shiraz 2014
Region: Padthaway, SA
The first Restless Farm wine was The Goat 2008 and they have all been sourced from Padthaway. This the sixth was released on December 4th 2016. We are attracted to this region because Shiraz often shows the mid palate density that we adore.
The type region is of course the Barossa Valley but we noticed years ago that other regions do get close and the grapes are far cheaper, at times one third the price of the Barossa. As we are wine merchants we go where the value can be found.
Padthaway is well north of Coonawarra and thus warmer and I enjoy the Shiraz flavours which are fuller and riper than those nearer the coast. The full bodied characters of 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 of our large wine groups. Limit one case per order. Please note: This wine has no front label hence the price.
