Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Vinous March 2016
Brilliant ruby. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit and licorice aromas are lifted by a peppery nuance and a sexy floral quality. Broad and weighty on the palate, offering lush blueberry, cherry compote and spicecake flavors given lift and spine by juicy acidity. Plays richness off of vivacity with a sure hand, finishing smooth and long, with just a hint of dusty tannins. - Josh Raynolds.

A dried lavender note adds an effortlessness to the polished blackberry and blueberry flavors, lingering on the finish. Drink now.



Winemaker Notes

Medium bright red color. On the nose, the 2014 Shiraz reveals aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice and hints of pepper. The palate is broad and lush, the blueberry and cherry flavors complemented by notes of allspice. Dusty, well integrated tannins, a refreshing acid line and a long, smooth finish make this vintage one of Shoofly’s best.
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.
