Deep dark chocolate jam notes. Easy to drink. Delicious with my chocolate chip cookie.

Australians are serious about keeping their cool. They may look relaxed as they casually shoo away the incessantly buzzing flies, but the message is clear - nothing's going to get them down!

Australians are serious about keeping their cool. They may look relaxed as they casually shoo away the incessantly buzzing flies, but the message is clear - nothing's going to get them down! They tend to take life's challenges in stride and simply get on with the job at hand. Like making wines with some oomph and stuffing, the sort you’d just as likely tuck into with your midweek pasta and take to a fancy dinner party on the weekend. That said, they take their winemaking pretty seriously, and it shows with Shoofly’s collection of robust, full-of-flavor wines. Crafted from hand-selected vineyard sites that are rich in character and demonstrate true varietal pedigree, these are wines that show Australia at its best. Read less

Dark red. Bright aromas of blackberry, cherry and licorice, with hints of fennel and black pepper. Firm and juicy, with dried cherry and plum flavors and a strong bitter pepper note. Quite syrah in character and structure.

Polished and supple, this is brimming with red berry, black cherry and delicate spice flavors, all coursing through the expressive finish. Drink now through 2020.

This is an excellent value from Shoofly. The fruit-driven 2004 Shiraz reveals a deep ruby/purple color, medium to full body, abundant amounts of blackberry and cassis fruit, and hints of licorice, spice, and earth. Enjoy this attractive red over the next few years.

Fresh and distinctive for its wild berry and herb flavors. Not typical of Shiraz, but appealing.

Bright purple. Dark berries, woodsmoke and cracked pepper on the nose and palate. Very syrah in character. Chewy, focused and gently sweet, with good finishing power and lingering smokiness.

Crisp in texture, with lovely black pepper notes around the blueberry and plum flavors, finishing lithe and graceful. Drink now through 2010.
