DOWIE DOOLE is a story of two terroirs and time. Their home McLaren Vale, South Australia has unique, ancient terroirs that produce world class wines that can proudly challenge the best in the world. Their Estate Vineyards are located in two of McLaren Vale’s most prized terroirs; the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs and the ancient rocks of Tatachilla. With geology as old as 650M years, some of the oldest geology vines are grown anywhere in the world. In 1995 Dowie Doole’s founders Drew Dowie and Norm Doole realized the potential of their estate vineyard. Forming a partnership to nurture these two terroirs, using Biodynamic techniques to ensure the sustainability of these living landscapes for future generations. The fruit therefore truly expresses not only its place but also the environment in which it is grown. This story continues, now in the hands of Chief Winemaker Chris Thomas. Drew and Norm, both visionary and passionate about sustainability, saw the need to pass on Dowie Doole to the next generation for the story to continue. So, in 2015, 20 years after foundation, Drew and Norm knew the passion that their winemaker Chris carried for the story to continue, so they gave him the opportunity to purchase Dowie Doole. Chris and a group of like-minded wine enthusiasts purchased Dowie Doole in 2015. Norm Doole still remains involved as a shareholder and chairman.
Deep, rich purple with purple hue. A complex nose of ripe, sweet, dark berries, licorice, black currants and a touch of vanilla and coffee from the oak maturation. The palate is rich and full, with dark berry and blackcurrant character. It has fine tannin finish that will soften further with bottle age.
