Shoofly the Freckle 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit smoky, dense and honeyed on the nose with very citron/citrus aromas and a nice, candied peach back note over some fine apple fruit. This shows nice energy on the palate with ripe apple fruit touched with honey flavors, but retains great cut. This is a touch simple, though it does pick up pollen and herb notes on the back end before finishing with a wonderful mineral wash and pretty good length. This is distinctive and eminently drinkable. 88pts

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
