Overview

Initial excitement for this wine comes from the lifted spice nose, enhanced by sweet fruit aromas of dark berries – strawberries, raspberries and cherry. Then follows the wonderful mocha and chocolate richness from the Shiraz component, sitting in great harmony with the Grenache spice. The palate shows excellent texture and softness and is very rounded with long persistence. The finish lingers with a complex mix of savoury spice, and velvety smooth chocolate flavours.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Cape Barren, named after the rare Cape Barren Geese that are regular visitors to the vineyard, is the passion of owners Brian Ledgard & Peter Matthews.

The unique McLaren Vale maritime climate offers long warm summers cooled by afternoon ocean breezes, thus providing the ideal ripening conditions for grapes destined for full-bodied red wine.

All fruit for Cape Barren Old Vine Shiraz is sourced from a single seventy year old vineyard at Blewitt Springs that has previously been used to produce some of South Australia's icon wines.
