Winner of 3 Trophies at the McLaren Vale Wine Show 2022. And only $22.99. Bargain in anyone's language.
Best Shiraz of Show - 2022 McLaren Vale Wine Show
Best Shiraz One-Year Old - 2022 McLaren Vale Wine Show
Best Single-Vineyard Shiraz - 2022 McLaren Vale Wine Show
Cooter & Cooter is the hottest shiraz on the market. It took out 3 trophies at the McLaren Vale wine show including best Shiraz. Can you imagine the competition in that show? And not only that, remember the 2021 McLaren Vale vintage is the arguably the best quality vintage in the last 20 years. So when a Shiraz from a famous region, takes home all the shiraz trophies off a famous vintage, you bet we sit up and take notice, especially when we're asking only $22.99.
Cooter & Cooter remind me of Bondar a few years ago, in fact it won all the same trophies as Bondar Violet Hour did way back in 2016, and Bondar went on to become the marquee McLaren Vale producer. I can't help but thinking perhaps Cooter & Cooter is on the same trajectory.
Just lust year the winery was a Young Gun of Wine Finalist and it was also named "Best Small Producer" at the McLaren Vale Wine Show.
This is a bright and refreshing expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Buoyant, yet juicy. The Soft tannins give rise to a long, moreish finish. It's delicious now, but will age gracefully over the next 5 years. With 3 trophies in the bag and a super keen price, stocks won't last long, jump in quick.
Where this wine comes from - McLaren Vale
Just south of Adelaide in South Australia, McLaren Vale is a red wine drinker’s haven, producing rich, velvety textured reds the state is known for. Looking over St Vincent Gulf, the maritime influence in McLaren Vale helps to keep summer temperatures down while the steady temperatures are perfect for producing balanced reds that are certainly easy on the palate. In a similar vein to the Barossa, McLaren Vale hangs its hat on Shiraz, but similarly, Grenache and Mourvèdre play a strong supporting role – perhaps outshining the star of the show on occasion! Certainly its GSM blends deserve recognition, producing seamless wines. Enjoying its Mediterranean climate, it comes as no surprise that the wines of McLaren Vale are perfect with hearty Italian dishes – ragout, pizza, or an antipasto platter – you can’t go wrong.
