Cabernet Sauvignon 51.5% | Shiraz 42.6% |  Merlot 4.7% | Petit Verdot 1.2%

"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.

Australian’s are passionate about the quintessential Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. We love the Cabernet lift, shiraz weight and merlot elegance. This modern twist of the CSM blend incorporates a small but significant amount of Petit Verdot that adds further complexity to this classic Australian CSM.


Colour: Rich, deep crimson with ruby hue

Nose: A beautiful Cabernet bouquet of blackcurrant and mint with dark berry fruits, spicy Shiraz notes and soft red fruits from the Merlot.

Palate: The palate is soft and juicy exhibiting flavours of blackcurrant, blackberry and plum with a touch of nutmeg spice. The tannins which are further enhanced by the Petit Verdot component are fine, long and soft, making it ideal for early drinking and short term aging.

"51.5% cabernet sauvignon, 42.6% shiraz, 4.7% merlot and 1.2% petit verdot from Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale, each parcel separately vinified and matured, 60% in used hogsheads for 19 months, the remainder held in tank until blending. This is an archetypal Aussie red, brimful of confidence and flavour, ready for whatever you throw at it.”  James Halliday
