Dowie Doole established their own McLaren Vale winery in the mid-nineties. Their main aim has been to produce classic McLaren Vale wines that are more elegant and refined in style than mainstream Australian wines. They have 50 hectares of vines which are spread between their home vineyard and four others: Tintookie, Old Rifle Range, California Road and Wetlands Vineyards. Only the finest fruit is used with state of the art modern winemaking technology.
This is a quintessential Australian Sparkling Red wine. It is rich and dark in colour and full bodied. A velvety palate exhibits flavours of blackberry and cherry with hints of chocolate and spice. While rich, the wine is nevery cloying, finishing with vibrant acidity and some lovely drying tannins to offset the semi-sweetness of the wine. (ref Dowie Doole)
Ideal as an accompaniment to barbecued food or a charcuterie platter.
