Winemaker Notes

Healthy rains in winter and spring set up the vines perfectly and allowed for stress free conditions from veraison to harvesting. On the nose the 2008 shiraz shows earthy gravel, spicy licorice and dense dark mulberries, while the sweet upfront berry fruit presented on tasting gives way to complex cedar, earth and spice notes, wrapping up with ample structure and grip. The vibrant, juicy fruit runs the length of the palate and lingers with a "have another glass" finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator
Polished and round, with raspberry, blackberry and spice flavors that dance easily over the fine tannins on the finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported.
WE 88
Wine Enthusiast
Offers plenty of intensity and suppleness, but lacks a touch of freshness. Still, its dark flavors of cooked-down fruit offer enjoyment over the near term when paired with the right dish, like a savory meatloaf.
RP 87
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Purple-colored, it exhibits a nose of violets, plums, and blueberry. Easy-going and friendly on the palate, it has plenty of ripe flavor and a smooth finish.
W&S 87
Wine & Spirits
There’s good juice at the heart of this wine, blueberry scented fruit surrounded by coffee like tannins and gingery acidity. It’s thick and ripe, for a charry steak or seared duck breast.

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.

Though Syrah originated in the Rhône Valley of France, Australia is home to the oldest Syrah (called Shiraz here) vines on the planet. Found in Australia’s Barossa Valley, where phylloxera has never threated viticulture, these ancient vines are between 140 to 175 years old!

Having brought fame and merit to the country’s wine scene since the early 1950s, namely via the debut of Penfolds Grange, today Syrah (Shiraz) claims rank as the most widely planted grape in Australia. In fact, the amount of land dedicated to Shiraz in Australia is now almost equivalent to what it is in France. Australian Shiraz has its own personality with flavors and aromas of intense blackberry, fruitcake, menthol, tobacco leaf and umami. Conveniently one can find great Australian Shiraz at a variety of price points but the very best will be dense, gloriously complex and capable of long aging.
