Cape Barren Funky Goose Gruner Veltliner
Adelaide Hills
Available by the dozen
A derivative of Traminer, Savignin and Pinot Noir, Gr√ľner Veltliner was only recently reconsidered as a consequential table wine when it outclassed all comers at a prestigious international competition, against the great growths of Burgundy. Gr√ľner Veltliner is the favourite tipple amongst the bohemian habitants and twilight denizens of Vienna, an animated style of appeal and panache, its piquant white pepper spice and nashi crispness, resolves on a long mineral finish, leaving the palate clean, revitalized and refreshed.

The warm summers at the Blewitt Springs vineyard are often accompanied by the arrival of magnificent Cape Barren geese. Dry, sunny and cool days throughout the McLaren Vale summer provide ideal conditions for slow, even flavour and sugar development in the fruit. As temperatures warm through March and April the flavour and sugar accumulation intensifies. Native Goose Shiraz is traditionally run off skins and pressed at two degrees baume. A third is transferred to a mix of new and old French oak barrels to finish fermentation. The balance is transferred to one and two year old French and American oak barrels for sixteen months, followed by a bottling after minimal filtration.
 
Purple hues dominate the colour. Aromas of ripe plum and fresh red berries, mixed spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and liquorice. Intense berry fruits are backed by complex nuances of espresso and toasty oak. A lengthy palate complexed by nuances of mocha and balanced by fine oak. A persistent finish of velvet fruit over well structured tannins. Offers the body and structure to match well with Szechuan pepper crusted kangaroo fillet.

A third is transferred to new French oak hogsheads for completion. The balance is filled to oak after fermenting to dry. Components are matured up to eighteen months in a combination new and seasoned French and American oak barriques and hogsheads.
 
Richly coloured, dense with purple hues. Intense lift of dark chocolate and plum characters with hints of five spice excite the senses. Blackberry intensity immediately fills the palate, mixing seamlessly with dark chocolate and mocha. Powerful soft tannins are harmoniously in balance, achieving the holy grail of power and finesse. A long, persistent finish is supported by a subtle oak accent and soft, supple tannins.

Cape Barren Wines create generous and profound wines, sourced from some of South Australia's finest vineyard sites

Located in the renowned McLaren Vale region of South Australia, the Cape Barren vineyards benefit from the unique maritime climate of long warm summers cooled by afternoon ocean breezes, ideal conditions for grapes destined for full-bodied red wines. Starting from humble beginnings with the first vintage in 1999, Cape Barren Wines is the result of a 35 year friendship between Peter Matthews, who has 30 years experience in executive Sales and General Management, and Brian Ledgard, a third generation grape grower, and their lifelong interest in vineyards and wine. Their ambition was and is, to produce full bodied wine of uncompromised quality and excellence.

Cape Barren

Cape Barren Wines are made from fruit parcels carefully selected from premium estate vineyards throughout the McLaren Vale. Cape Barren first produced the Old Vine Shiraz, and as the name suggests, the fruit was selected from the 70 year old vines at Blewitt Springs. This wine quickly gained a reputation and was followed by the introduction of the Native Goose Grenache Shiraz Mourvédre and the Native Goose Shiraz. Most recently was the addition of Silly Goose, a blend of Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc and McLaren Vale Semillon and Viognier.

Cape Barren is comprised of over 150 acres of quality vineyards across the McLaren Vale region of South Australia, including Willunga and the premium Blewitt Springs area. Slightly elevated, the Blewitt Springs sub-region is bordered by the Adelaide foothills. At around 150m above sea level the higher altitude promotes slower ripening, allowing the fruit to mature over a longer time frame, promoting superior flavour development. The Blewitt Springs vineyard is gently undulating with a unique soil structure of very deep sand over ironstone.

The precious vines at Blewitt Springs are protected on all sides from strong winds by native forest and mature tree windbreaks. These 25 acres of vines were planted some 70 years ago, the old vines produce a low yield of approximately two tonne per acre. Only select parcels of fruit from this vineyard make it into the Reserve Release Old Vine Shiraz. The unique terroir of this vineyard allows the crafting of an elegant Shiraz that possesses a profound depth of flavour.

McLaren Vale is only 37km from the heart of Adelaide CBD and situated on the beautiful and geographically diverse Fleurieu Peninsula. Known for its mild climate McLaren Vale is home to some of the best wine grapes in the country. The Willunga sub-region of McLaren Vale is located on the coastal plain, near the southern ocean providing a strong maritime influence. The fertile soils are red brown alluvial loams, sandy and darker soils with a climate typically of cool wet winters and warm dry summers.

In recent years Australian and International wine critics have sung the praises of McLaren Vale Shiraz, earmarking McLaren Vale as one of the best Shiraz producing regions in the world. The estate's winemaking team crafts abundantly flavoured wines which are supported by a structure and backbone that will deliver improvement with a decade in the cellar. The reds are matured in French oak hogsheads and American oak barriques for many months, with a policy of minimal handling.
