Winemaking:

Ben Riggs, Shoofly’s winemaker, is a South Australian native who knows his stuff and where to get it. His roster of grape growers is one of the most sought after contact lists in the country. A ‘growers’ wine, this Shiraz is sourced from a collection of top South Austrlian vineyards with robust flavors of dark berry and a lifted savory spiciness from the cooler sites. McLaren Vale’s temperate maritime climate offers rich, ripe fruit characters and great acid balance. Padthaway and Adelaide enjoy a cool and continental climate, perfect for producing spicy fruit.


Tasting Notes:

Medium bright red color. On the nose, the 2015 Shiraz reveals aromas of bright sour cherry fruits and light Asian spices. The supple red fruits carry across to the clean, bright palate and give way to complex nutmeg, tamarind, earth and eucalypt notes. The long finish is lengthy and ends as bright and fresh as it begins.
