Wine Region: McLaren Vale, Australia
Midnight black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Pronounced liquorice and dark chocolate aromas ooze out of the glass followed by ripe blackberry, dark plum, vanillin characters and spice. Possessing plenty of body weight, this rich opulently textured Shiraz delivers tremendous value. Dominating the front half of the palate are plush liquorice and ripe blackberry fruits which saturate the mouth. Juicy dark plum, chocolatey vanillin characters and spice then move in. Seamlessly integrated, silky smooth tannins. Finishes sleek and powerful with a long showy aftertaste.
About the Winery
Woodstock is located in South Australia's McLaren Vale, arguably the country's top wine region for big, booming reds.
Modern founder Doug Collett caught the wine bug while flying Spitfires over Europe for the Royal Australian Air Force during World War 2, admiring the vineyards below as he went and savouring the local wines while on leave - as you do!
Son Scott Collett is the current patriarch with one of Australia's winemaking superstars Ben Glaetzer (Robert Parker's a BIG fan!) overseeing production and blending.
