BLOWFLY

THE WINES

​Crafted from fruit selected at night by human hands on the chilly slopes of South Burloo estate, Coonabararban.  Vintage details available on our Buy Flies store.

greenbottle Brut Reserve NV
 

a sparkling chardonnay/pinot noir, made using méthode champenoise, it has a fine bead that pairs well with shell fish & duck pâté.

Blends

bluebottle Red
 

a very distinct bordeaux style blend based on merlot.  medium bodied & fiendishly seductive, dubbed the 'shape-shifter' this wine pairs well with dishes from sashimi to steak.

BLOWFLY Chambourcin

 

an inky coloured 'big softy',  bold fruit & soft tannins define this grape.  bright acidity & a hint of gaminess make it a great companion to venison & duck.

BLOWFLY Merlot 

 

our basalt clay soils confer an earthiness to the merlots, & the fine tannins provide an anchor to the ripe fuit.  these wines are happiest with a fillet of red meat.

Varietals

BLOWFLY Petit Verdot

 

a minor bordeaux variety but a big flavour component.  dark, spicy & with well-integrated tannins our petit verdot pairs well with slow-cooked meats & curries.

BLOWFLY Shiraz 

 

the most variable of our varieties according to vintage, shiraz can be soft & smoky or bold & spicy.  in its softer guise our shiraz pairs well with light gamey dishes like rabbit & quail, while its bolder self craves a darker meat.

Passito

MAELSTROM

 

a voluptuous passito style wine, made by semi-drying grape berries before vinification.  this concentrates the fruit & aromatics of the wine without compromising acidity, yielding a dark, rich & very balanced cheese or dark chocolate dessert companion.

Reserve

CEASE & DESIST Dorbeaux

 

in simple terms, a bordeaux style blend bottled in dubbo, nsw.  but the wines themselves are comprised through careful barrel selection of as little as three barrels from any particular vintage, & are anything but simple.  balance is the key, with an eye on ageing refinement.

CEASE & DESIST Val Cuna

 

a rhone style blend from the coonabarabran region.  the Val Cuna evolves from selecting the most intriguing barrels of shiraz & shaping them with touches of chambourcin, petit verdot or viognier to produce a dark, refined, full-bodied wine.

FLY GEAR
