Towards the end of each summer, Cape Barren Wines are 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 Wines vineyards searching for grain and grape seeds after harvest.

Shapely red with coconut, licorice and raspberry flavours bulging through the palate. It's enough to brighten up your day. Lines of tannin and acid keep it nicely under control. Value not to be sneezed at. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 92, 4th August 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright crimson-purple hues showing youthful tinges.
A fragrant lift of a mix of red and dark forest berries, with plum, and a background of savoury and spice nuances, with hints of cinnamon and 5-spice.
Juicy dark berry fruits are the basis of a supple, medium to full bodied palate, with structured layers of spiciness and chocolate and black olive. The flavours are long leading to perfectly balanced tannins and subtle oak.
