On Sue Trott's Blewitt Springs vineyard in McLaren Vale, five wild geese have lived for many years, foraging for feed between the rows of vines. Each night they sleep on the waters of the dam, seeking refuge from marauding foxes - hence the name five geese.

The five geese Shiraz is sourced from Sue's vineyard, planted in 1965. The soil is deep sand over clay and is minimally irrigated from a small amount of available surface water.

The five geese Grenache Shiraz is sourced from her dry grown, old bush Grenache vines, planted in the 1920's. These gnarly old vines produce a very intensely flavoured Grenache. These vines are some of the oldest in the district.
