An elegant Aussie red blend, brimful of flavour, the Shiraz and Grenache combining to produce a fruit forward wine full of character

"HOOLEY DOOLEY” is a uniquely Australian expression of surprise, amazement and awe and perfectly mirrors this delicious wine inside the bottle. HOOLEY DOOLEY has provided a perfect solution for those who have trouble with our name; it’s what you say when you can’t pronounce DOWIE DOOLE.

Produced from Shiraz & 53-year-old Grenache from DOWIE DOOLE Estate Vineyard in the McLaren Vale sub-region of Tatachilla. Shiraz and McLaren Vale are synonymous and Grenache is fast becoming the jewel in the region’s crown.

The inspiration for HOOLEY DOOLEY Red… This wine is made to be fun, approachable and have a high degree of drinkability.


Colour: Deep purple, with a vibrant hue.

Nose: Grenache characters of strawberries, cherry and boiled lollies jump out of the glass first, followed by the deeper, darker Shiraz fruit; plum, blackberries and spice.

Palate: All the fruit characters from the nose follow through onto the palate. The wine is fruit driven, juicy and soft with a subtle, gentle tannin line giving the wine good structure and length.
