Winemaker's Notes:

Carefully selected parcels of grapes were sourced from a selection of renowned Shiraz vineyards in premium Australian wine regions, including Riverland, Padthaway, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek in South Australia, where brilliant sun and ancient soils do their best.

Winemaker, Ben Riggs and his team enthused as the fruits of their labour evolved into a full-bodied and flavorsome wine, deep-hued with richly scented aromatics and a long, soft and juicy palate. Of lush mouthfeel, bursting with blackberry, blueberry jam and liquorice, this wine guarantees a true Australian Shiraz experience.

My Notes:

About Woop Woop:

Slang for "in the middle of nowhere", Woop Woop isn't a bad name for a ripper Aussie wine. Woop Woop is a collaboration between Ben Riggs, winemaker and Tony Parkinson, vineyard owner. They sourced grapes from the backblocks - outside their normal area of operation – they almost went to Woop Woop and back to find the right fruit. Nearly to the Outback, way past the black stump. Woop Woop wines capture the essence of ripe grapes sourced from Currency Creek, McLaren Vale and the Riverina, together with a good dose of Aussie humor.
