The 2017 Five Geese Old Vine The Pippali Shiraz is a complex and elegant wine showcasing an array of dark red blackberries. The lifted aroma displays juicy black cherry, plum, and blueberry fruits, with a hint of violets and sweet cinnamon. The long supple and luscious palate is full of plump black fruits with delicious ripe chewy tannins, leading into a silky smooth finish with hints dark chocolate and toasty oak.

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.

The majority of the grapes in the Five Geese Old Vine The Pipali Shiraz 2017 are from an old vine vineyard located in the Blewit Springs sub region of McLaren Vale, at an elevation of 200m.
The deep sand soils contribute to the low yields and the intensity of the wine, giving it the unique Blewitt Springs character. Winery Notes
