The famous Aussie "Chook Raffle” is the weekly fundraising raffle where for a buck, you might win a frozen chook (chicken) or just about anything the organizer can scrounge up! Shoofly’s Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is crafted with a touch more care, using carefully ripened fruit with just a touch of oak and a dash of Riesling and Verdelho to give bright, juicy flavors reminiscent of grapefruit and melon. On the nose, this zippy Chardonnay offers aromas of tropical fruit, peaches and melon while on the palate; grapefruit and lemon zest are complemented by zingy acidity. This youthful wine is drinking great now and will develop more complexity over the next 3 years.

The fruit for the Chook Raffle Chardonnay is sourced from Australia’s premier cool-climate wine region, Adelaide Hills. Situated in the Mount Lofty Ranges at an altitude of 2300 feet, this region is ideally suited for crisp Chardonnay. Shoofly’s Chook Raffle Chardonnay is made in a fresh, crisp style that is perfect for early drinking. A small portion of the wine was matured in older French oak to add complexity, aromatics and texture.

International Wine Cellar 07/01/2009, 88 points, “Pale gold. Exotic tropical and pit fruits on the nose^^ Wine Advocate 12/15/2009, 87 points, “The 2008 Chook Raffle is 100% Chardonnay which was partially barrel-fermented. It is a spicy^^ Wine Enthusiast 11/01/2009, 88 points/Editors’ Choice, “This Chardonnay from the cool-climate Adelaide Hills offers plenty to like for the price: hints of toast and vanilla frame fruit that ranges from grilled peaches and pears to ripe melons. Round without being overly rich^^ Wine Spectator 11/30/2009, 89 points, “Taut and distinctive for its range of pear

Australians are serious about keeping their cool. They may look relaxed as they casually shoo away the incessantly buzzing flies, but the message is clear - nothing's going to get them down! They tend to take life's challenges in stride and simply get on with the job at hand. Like making wines with some oomph and stuffing, the sort you’d just as likely tuck into with your midweek pasta and take to a fancy dinner party on the weekend. That said, they take their winemaking pretty seriously, and it shows with Shoofly’s collection of robust, full-of-flavor wines. Crafted from hand-selected vineyard sites that are rich in character and demonstrate true varietal pedigree, these are wines that show Australia at its best.
