Wine and Winery Information


Cape Barren wines are produced from vineyards particularly hand selected for their exceptional quality and consistency. Our reds are produced from the world renowned McLaren Vale region, from vines older than 45 years. These seriously old vines produce wines of supreme concentration and complexity not seen in younger vines. It is this history on which our future lies. With its picturesque and undulating terrain and maritime climate, McLaren Vale is one of the finest regions in the world for grape-growing — especially forShiraz and Grenache.

Both parcels of fruit were hand harvested early in the morning when temperatures were low. Crushing occurred soon after, and only the finest portions of the free run juice were used. After clarifying the juice, fermentation commenced as separate parcels in stainless steel. At about the mid-point, all the Lenswood ferment, and 50% of the Charleston portion was filled to French oak Hogsheads to complete fermentation. The balance of the Charleston parcel completed the process in stainless steel tank. The lees in the barrels were stirred weekly for 2 months. After 3 months, the parcels were combined, stabilised and filtered. The wine was then bottled early to retain the fresh fruitiness.

The colour is the brilliant green hue of medium intensity. The pungent attractive tropical intensity of passionfruit melds seamlessly with hints of lemongrass, lime juice zing and pink grapefruit freshness. Fresh, flavoursome palate of cut grass, tropical freshness with a silky smooth texture and crisp citrus zing, leaving the mouth yearning for more. The result is a wine of astonishing length and residual fruitiness. Immediate drinking.
