The 2016 Five Geese McLaren Vale Nero d'Avola is a brilliant cherry red colour, bright and attractive. Savoury bouquet, perfumed with dark maraschino cherry, quince paste, very subtle smoky oak complexity. Elegant medium bodied, with a good line of acidity and a clean finish. Lingering ripe cherry flavour balanced by distinct but gentle tannins.

Winery & Vintage Info

Situated in one of the world’s most exciting wine regions, our 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. Our cabernet and nero d’avola varietals are grown from our 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 our 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.

As a boutique winemaker, we produce a limited quantity of wine each year, using only the very best grapes from our annual harvest. This ensures all our wines maintain the consistent, premium quality you’ve come to expect from Five Geese, no matter the vintage.

This Five Geese McLaren Vale Nero d'Avola 2016 is made with grapes sourced from the renowned Blewitt Springs vineyard in South Australia aged for 10 months in French oak barrels. Winery Notes
