Towards the end of each summer, Cape Barren is greeted in their vineyards by the arrival of magnificent Cape Barren Geese. These are amongst the rarest of the world’s geese, and are native to Australia. The birds are named after Cape Barren Island where the birds were first sighted centuries ago. The friendly colony lives on Kangaroo Island to the south of McLaren Vale, and they fly into Cape Barren's vineyards searching for grain and grape seeds after harvest.

Voluminous style. Chubby with oak and fruit but it holds its form well through the finish. Creamy cedar wood and peach flavours dominate until racy nectarine and citrus notes pull through. Big wine. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 92, 2nd September 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Elegant quite floral nose, with hints of white stone fruit characters, and pineapple.
A very finely structured palate with nuances of grapefruit, melon and tropical fruitiness contributing to a round and mouth-filling creaminess. The acidity is perfectly balanced and the oak restrained.
