The Goat from Restless Farm
Restless Farm 'The Goat' Padthaway Shiraz 2014
Region: Padthaway, SA
Padthaway is warmer and well north of Coonawarra and I enjoy the flavours of Shiraz which are fuller and riper than those south near 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 fifth vintage we have stocked. I know Glug customers will find the style most appealing.
