Five Geese vineyards are situated in one of the world’s most exciting wine regions. Their McLaren Vale vineyard expands across 32 hectares of exceptional terroir in the north-eastern end of the Willunga basin.
Boasting some of the area’s oldest vines, Five Geese’s estate-grown Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro and Grenache grapes were planted in 1927 and 1965. their Cabernet and Nero d’Avola varietals are grown from their vines in the eastern end of the valley.
The intriguing wine label was named for the five wild geese that wandered onto the vineyard one day and never left. The geese became the guardians of the Five Geese vines, keeping the vineyard in check and chasing away any unwanted animals, bugs and snails.
Sitting approximately 180 metres above sea level, the Five Geese vines enjoy a slightly higher elevation and cooler climate. The moderating afternoon sea breezes allow their grapes a long, even ripening season. They’re often picked two to three weeks later than other wineries in the district, giving Five Geese wines a more developed, complex and balanced flavour profile.
