(2012 Vintage) Ben Riggs, Shoofly’s winemaker, is a South Australian native who 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. A ‘growers’ wine, this Shiraz is sourced from a collection of top South Austrlian vineyards with robust flavors of dark berry and a lifted savory spiciness from the cooler sites. McLaren Vale’s temperate maritime climate offers rich, ripe fruit characters and great acid balance. Padthaway and Adelaide enjoy a cool and continental climate, perfect for producing spicy fruit.
