Winemaker Notes

Blend: 70% Shiraz, 25% Grenache, 5% Viognier

Big, bold and beautiful! The Aussie Salute is a blend of succulent Shiraz, spicy Grenache and a whiff of aromatic Viognier - a feisty combination that works wonders on the palate. Rich, fragrant and inviting, this wine expresses blackberry, plum, currant and black pepper notes.

Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a "have another glass" finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

Food pairings: Spinach salad with goat cheese and dried cherries; penne pasta with feta, peppers and sausage; soy-ginger flank steak with grilled eggplant.

"A blend of Shiraz (70%), Grenache (25%) and Viognier (5%), this is a lush, weighty red imbued with earhty flavors of espresso, olives and dark-skinned plums that linger on the finish. The creamy texture makes it go down easy; pair it with grilled or roasted meats." 89 Points,

Shoofly's winemaker Ben Riggs is a native of McLaren Vale and has been crafting some of the region's finest for two decades. Ben 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. Premium regions produce the best fruit and the grapes come from a "who's who" of Australian growers and viticultural neighborhoods – Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and Heathcote.

Monterey

View all wine

A geographic and climatic anomaly among wine regions, Monterey is a part of the expansive Central Coast AVA and contains five smaller sub-appellations, including the popular Santa Lucia Highlands. Rainfall is extremely low, necessitating the use of irrigation from the Salinas River for successful grape-growing, while harsh Pacific winds and coastal fogs drastically cool and dampen the region in the north.

In the cooler districts of Monterey, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling produce wines with a crowd-pleasing combination of ripe, juicy fruit and crisp acidity. Warmer subzones are home to fleshy, fruit-forward Bordeaux Blends comprised primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
