Overview

Each variety was processed separately, and handled very carefully to ensure maximum flavour retention. Harvesting occurred at night when temperatures were very low, and only the finest portions of the free run juice were used. After clarifying the juice, fermentation was carried out at temperatures around 12°C until dry. Blending proportions were decided to ensure the best balance to highlight

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.
