About Us

The beauty of Five Geese spans across 32 Hectares of vineyards located in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia.

Nestled in the north-eastern end of the Willunga basin, Blewitt Springs lies about 180m above sea level. This slightly higher elevation provides a cooler climate than nearby McLaren Vale and Willunga. With cooler temperatures and moderating afternoon sea breezes, the grapes grown here enjoy a long, even ripening season.

Vintage in Blewitt Springs is often some two to three weeks later than the rest of the district. These extra weeks give the fruit time to develop more complex flavour ripeness, without the excessive baumes found in warmer areas. The grapes develop a beautiful balance of flavour, acidity, and sugar, which then translate into complex, but not overly alcoholic wines.

The Five Geese Shiraz is sourced from Blewitt Springs vineyard. The soil is deep sand over clay and is minimally irrigated from a small amount of available surface water.

The Five Geese Grenache is hand-picked from the dry grown, old bush Grenache vines. These gnarly old vines produce a very intensely flavoured Grenache. These vines are some of the oldest in the district.

Five Geese also has vines near McLaren Flat (located at the eastern end of the valley) and from here we source our Cabernet and Nero d'Avola. The deep alluvial iron-rich soils of the vineyard imparts vibrant textures and flavours to the fruit.

The company’s underlying philosophy is to promote itself by producing premium wines that are recognised as excellent value for money.

A complex and elegant wine with a savoury array of dark red and blackberries

  • Colour

    vibrant deep red colour with purple hues
  • Aroma

    The lifted aroma displays juicy black cherry, plum, and blueberry fruits, with a hint of violets and sweet cinnamon.
  • Palate

    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.
  • Notes

    The majority of the grapes 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
  • Ageing Potential

This is an excellent youthful wine that can be enjoyed now or cellar for a further 5 to 10 years.
