James' Review

Sue Trott is devoted to her Five Geese wines, which come from vines planted in 1927 and ?65 (shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, grenache and mataro), nero d?Avola a more recent arrival. She sold the grapes for many years, but in ?99 decided to create her own label and make a strictly limited amount of wine from the pick of the vineyards, which are run on organic principles. The quality of the wines, and their price, is exemplary. Exports to the UK, Korea and Singapore.

About this winery

Five Geese is a small McLaren Vale winery that specializes in red wine; Grenache, Shiraz, a Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d'Avalo. The company’s underlying philosophy is to promote itself by producing premium wines that are recognised as excellent value for money.

Nestled in Blewitt Springs at the north-eastern end of the McLaren Vale valley, the Five Geese vineyard lies about 180m above sea level. This slightly higher elevation provides a cooler climate than nearby McLaren Vale and Willunga, providing a long, even ripening season for our fruit.
The soils are sandy with heavy clay and iron-stone beneath. Only surface water, collected in dams, is used for minimal irrigation.
Our Grenache block was planted in 1957 and is dry-grown and hand-picked.

We take our name from the five geese that live on the vineyard. They may greet you as you pass the vineyards with a hiss and a honk!

Specialties

We specialize in making what McLaren Vale is famous for; red wines. We make Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet and Nero d'Avalo in the five geese range and in the best of years a Reserve Range is released.

Our wines provide excellent quality year-in and year-out , for the discerning drinker to the wine connoisseur, looking to age something exceptional for that special occasion.
