DOWIE DOOLE's Shining Stars - Halliday Wine Companion 2017

DOWIE DOOLE Reserve Shiraz 2013

95 points - GOLD "Outstanding"

"A worthy follow up to the excellent 2012. The aromas are classic McLaren Vale shiraz plum, hint of spice wrapped in classy French oak. The palate is a delicious melange of fruit, tannin and spice laden oak; long and well framed." James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

DOWIE DOOLE Estate Shiraz 2014

94 points - "Outstanding" & awarded "Special Value" rating

"Dark red; a purely fruited and aromatic bouquet, has plum and dark fruits wrapped neatly with well handled oak; fine, rounded and well balanced, it admirably handles its concentrated fruit, and finishes long and fine." James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

THE FRUIT OF THE VINE - The Architect Shiraz 2013

94 points - "Outstanding"

"From the Blewitt Springs district, it is a distinctly individual expression. Spice, earth, dried herbs and hint of eucalypt lead to a fine and silky palate that builds into a lithe and lengthy savoury finish." James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

THE FRUIT OF THE VINE - The Teacher Shiraz 2013

94 points - "Outstanding"

"Two contrasting expressions of McLaren Vale shiraz. This release couldn't be any further in flavour and size than The Archiect from Blewitt Springs. Dark-fruited, saturated and powerful, it is more classic McLaren Vale, The Architect lean, savoury and lithe." James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

DOWIE DOOLE Tintookie Chenin Blanc 2012

92 points

"Mid-straw; a single vineyard chenin blanc from the cooler Blewitt Springs district; it has received additional bottle age prior to release, and was given the full treatment in the cellar, barrel fermentation and partial mlf. Complex and spiced lemon curd lead to a textural palate that retains a mineral drive." James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

DOWIE DOOLE Blanc2 2015

(Sauvignon Blanc / Chenin Blanc)

92 Points

"A co-fermented blend of 53% sauvignon blanc and 47% chenin blanc, fermented and aged on lees in used French oak. It is a good effort, pure and punchy on the bouquet, the palate restrained, but vibrant and long." James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

BUY NOW - from $26.99

 

DOWIE DOOLE G&T 2015 

(Grenache / Tempranillo)

92 points & awarded "Special Value" rating
