The most highly coke addled marketing executive couldn't have come up with a brand like Dowie Doole, but fast forward and the label now enjoys a growing reputation for profound Shiraz wines in Australia and overseas. Small crops of extraordinary quality fruit are grown to some enduring Mclaren Vale vines, to be fermented and matured at the Boar's Rock wineworks.
The small 74 Block was the first parcel to be replanted on Norm Doole's California Road Vineyard in 1974, it produces fruit of unique concentration and complexity. Shiraz is harvested throughout the night to take advantage of cooler temperatures. Fruit is crushed into a small static fermenter for vinification on skins over a period of eight days while being treated to pumpovers thrice daily. At 2 baume the must is pressed straight to a selection of completely new French oak hogsheads for twenty four months maturation and a course of several rack and returns. Upon completion, the assembled Dowie Doole is given a coarse filtration before bottling.
TASTING NOTES
Intense deep purple colour. A complex nose of dark fruits and leather, spices and dark chocolate. The full bodied palate is rich and generous, it follows on from the bouquet with blackberry and plums, spices and dark chocolate. A complex wine with excellent tannin structure, length and weight, marzipan and liquorice linger right through and onto the very long smooth aftertaste.

More About Dowie Doole Wines
A bottle of good wine can help solve many problems, such were the thoughts of Norm Doole and Drew Dowie as they watched the sun rise after enduring a cold, all-night session harvesting some of their fruit from the difficult 1995 vintage
Seeing their grapes being trucked away to other wineries and frustrated at not being in control of their fruit from that point, the two opened a bottle of red wine over breakfast and decided then to form a partnership, the purpose of which was to take charge of all aspects of growing grapes, making, bottling and selling their own wine.
