Overview

The Sauvignon provides the most immediate impact of tangy zest of gooseberries and green capsicum. Then the limey richness of the Semillon takes over to provide a long, lingering attraction, with just a hint of apricot from the Verdelho right at the finish. Clean, crisp acidity holds the whole wine together.

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.
