The Goose Shiraz
PRODUCER: The Goose wine range is truly unique as it is handcrafted in high altitude vineyards on the northern slopes of the Outeniqua Mountains, in the heart of the famous Garden Route. In 1999 the first 6 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon was planted followed by 6 hectares of Shiraz in 2000. Following the success of the first two cultivars planted, the year 2002 saw an additional 6 hectares added to the expanding vineyard, this planting was the popular Sauvignon Blanc.
WINEMAKING: All grapes are hand-picked. A limited number of bottles are produced per vintage. Discerning European wine lovers have accepted this new world wine as measurable to old world classics.
TASTING NOTES: The Goose Shiraz has a ruby red colour, scented bouquet with abundant smoke and spice, delivering exceptional richness and a powerful full-bodied finish. The tannins are ripe and soft, with a long, clean aftertaste.
