  • ENTER THE GOTHIC MYSTERYThe night is black as pitch, rain drops patter against your window and you can hear the clip clop of the headless horseman pacing in the dark alley below. The fire is crackling and you sink into your chair with a well-worn copy of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. You want a deep, brooding wine to match the mood. Complex and spell binging, Gotham is an enigma; a literary concept for a discerning pallet.

  • WHY GOTHAM?Our first wine, a 2004 Langhorne Creek Shirazblack as night, dark and brooding.

  • WHERE DOES THE NAME COME FROM?A Literary Concept, referencing Washington Irvings New York to 14th century English Nursery Rhymes

    Above all serious wine in the bottle, that doesnt take itself to seriously.

  • NOT YOUR TYPICAL AUSSIE WINESteering away from the critters, Gotham is a concept which does not play up the Australian category. We focus on regional expressions of Shiraz and Cabernet, which most definitely have fruit forward characters to be enjoyed by new world wine consumers, yet the wines maintain balanced and well integrated structural elements.

  • KEY MESSAGESRegional Vineyard Series featuring McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Barossa Valley.Langhorne Creek is clay soil producing a savory wine; McLaren Vale is dark and mineral rich, producing chocolate characters in the wine; Barossa Valley is sandy sometimes loamy soil producing great acidity and bright lush fruit driven wine.100% Varietals: Shiraz and Cabernet SauvignonHand-made, low sulfite wine.Sustainable water conservations farming practises.
