Shoofly Viognier Adelaide Plains 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Waxy and sandy on the nose with some nice floral notes. Very honeysuckle and rose stem scented but not very fruity, with just a hint of apricot. There’s a bit of sweetness here and some nice raw cashew nuttiness to go with it on entrr in a rather rich and creamy style. Good acidity lends this a citrus fruit character, though it is creamy with more of a tropical fruit tone on the back end that shows notes of pineapple and under ripe papaya. The finish is short. While there is a lightly honeyed note from thee sweetness, it’s rather earthy and dry, finishing with weird orange juice concentrate notes. 80pts

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
