The return of this very popular label, exclusive to Vino Fino in the South Island.


Cape Barren was founded in 1999 by Peter Matthews, who worked tirelessly to create wines of distinction from some of the oldest vineyards in McLaren Vale. Peter sold the business in late 2009 to Rob Dundon and Tom Adams, who together have amassed in excess of 50 years experience in winemaking, viticulture and international sales.

Rob Dundon, Winemaker, has been making wine for almost 35 years, including vintages in Germany. He was originally Senior Red Winemaker for Thomas Hardy Wines based in McLaren Vale, then created his own company Beresford Wines, which ultimately included a second brand Step Rd. Rob's wines over the years have won almost 2,000 medals and 200 trophies at Wine Shows. He spent many years as the International Sales Manager for Step Rd, so knows the intricacies involved in establishing export markets.

Tom Adams, Viticulturist, experience in the Wine Industry spans 26 years. His background and training is in viticulture, and he managed one of the most iconic and respected vineyards in Australia, the famous Metala Vineyards of around 800 acres. He developed the Brothers in Arms portfolio and established this as a well respected and formidable wine brand across the world. His ability to set up export markets and promote the wines, is highly regarded in the Industry. In 2003 he won the prestigious Australian Wine and Brandy Export Wine of the Year award. Tom pioneered significant water conservation techniques, which have gone on to be adopted by several Government departments across Australia.


100% Shiraz from 45 -70 year old vines grown in the Blewitt Springs district of the McLaren Vale. Grapes from 3 separate vineyards were harvested at the peak of flavour ripeness, and crushed separately. Aged in French 44%, American 56% - new 22%, 2-5 years old 78%


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2016 Vintage)
"Shiny black red in the glass. Juicy red berry scents laced with vanillin oak fill the bouquet and its lifted and spicy in the palate that seems so velvety smooth and flowing. Full of dark plums and chocolate, it is immediately approachable with a mouth-coating finish."
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Attractive deep, dark purple with red hues. Intense flavours of dark forest berries, such as raspberries and blackberries, backed by the ripe lift of Satsuma plums and chocolate, complexed by hints of five-spice and French oak toastiness. Richly textured wine which is truly mouth-filling with juicy layers of dark berries, spice, plum and chocolate. This persists with a very long lasting velvety smooth finish capped by structured, soft tannins".
