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.

Critical Acclaim

"Opaque ruby. Sexy, smoke- and spice-accented aromas and flavors of blueberry, cassis and dark cherry. Fleshy and sweet, with a suave floral quality carrying through a gently tannic and persistent finish. Offers outstanding value and is already very easy to drink."

Good value for the money. I think the other reviewers were expecting a $50 bottle of wine for 12 bucks. Definitely not in the same camp as a Mollydooker Carnival Of Love of the same vintage, but it works for a casual night with some friends over pizza or pasta. Decent drink-it-now Shiraz.

This wine was not very good at all. I would not recommend this wine to anyone. I took one drink. It will now be used for my prego and thin spaghetti. This wine was rated a 90. I will find it difficult to trust these ratings from now on. A waste of money.

Learn 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.

Learn About South Australia

The majority of wines from Australia come from this state. Home to the red wine regions of McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world.
