Cape Barren Native Goose Shiraz 2018
Excellent deep, dark purple hues.
Powerful intensity of forest berries, such as blueberries and blackberries intertwined with spice overtones of anise and cloves, mixing well with the ripe lift of Satsuma plums and chocolate, all enhanced by well-integrated oak freshness.
Medium-bodied but textured, showing finesse and excellent balance of juicy layers of blackberry, spice, plum and dustings of cocoa. These flavours persist through to a very long lasting velvety smooth finish capped by structured, soft tannins and harmonious oak.
Story About Us
Cape Barren wines are produced from vineyards particularly hand selected for their exceptional quality and consistency. Our reds are produced from the world renowned McLaren Vale region, from vines older than 45 years.
These seriously old vines produce wines of supreme concentration and complexity not seen in younger vines. It is this history on which our future lies.
With its picturesque and undulating terrain, and maritime climate, McLaren Vale is one of the finest regions in the world for grape-growing — especially forShiraz and Grenache.
Here the temperatures drop dramatically, especially at night, and the soils can be demanding and unforgiving, leading to smaller, more intensely flavoured fruit.
The region is a veritable maze of valleys and glens, with a criss-cross of slopes which offer every conceivable aspect and micro-climate variation. This not only makes the region both charming and strikingly beautiful — but also challenging.
Vineyards are selected not only for their flavour intensity and absolute quality, but also for their varying terroirs to produce a seductive bond between the passionate vigneron, micro-climate and art of winemaking.
Our flagship wine is Old Vine Reserve Release Shiraz. As the name would suggest, the fruit is harvested from very old vineyards in Blewitt Springs, aged between 85 and 120 years old, which are dry grown.
