Cape Barren Native Goose Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Native Goose is sourced from choice McLaren Vale and Willunga vines, between 45 and 120 years of age, planted to a mixture of rich clay soils and red/ brown loams. A portion is sourced from the estate property at Blewitt Springs, the same block used for the iconic Old Vine Reserve. Moderate rainfalls contribute to a harvest of small berries with a yield of about three tonne per acre. The combination of dry grown viticulture, fertile soils and warm weather concentrates the fruit and makes a deeply flavoured Shiraz wine.

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.
