Woop Woop 2004 Shiraz

2004 Woop Woop Shiraz

This weekend presented the opportunity to try a variety of different wines. Some were old favorites I’ve posted about before. Two of them were fun, value priced reds from Australia – one of which I’ll give a bit more info on in this post. The other I’ll post about later.

But first… We’re into our third straight week of 90+ temps and it’s shaping up to be a pretty hot summer. So a nice cool, crisp white is always nice. I had the 2004 Brancott Sauvignon Blanc on Saturday night. Not quite as complex and fruity as the Kim Crawford, but very refreshing nonetheless. It’s a few bucks cheaper too at around $11.

Ok, back to Australia. Woop Woop is a big jammy red wine with blackberry notes. It’s 100% Shiraz and aged in French and American oak. It’s got a smooth mouth feel with soft tannins. At $12 a pretty good buy.

About $12 (Austin – HEB).
