Dowie Doole California Road Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This McLaren Vale offering from Dowie Doole is a big unit of a wine. There's bucket loads of lush, fleshy, dark fruits, along with plenty of chocolaty, vanilla oak on the nose and palate, all wrapped up in fine, supple tannins, bright acidity, and a dry mocha finish. If you like your wines fruity with lashings of oak - this one is for you!

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Intense deep purple with crimson hue.

Nose: An attractive bouquet of raspberries, caramel, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Palate: The luscious palate displays excellent shiraz varietal character associated with the California Road Vineyard: red, juicy berries and dark chocolate. These flavours are well integrated with the sweet vanilla oak and will further develop as the wine ages. The full bodied palate exhibits fine silky tannins and balanced structure and will be enjoyed for many years to come.

Food: Moroccan lamb tagine, wagyu beef brisket.

Cellaring: 8 - 10 years.
