The Story

To capture the essence of McLaren Vale, we strive for absolute quality, beginning in our old vineyards, through every phase of winemaking, to the wines before you, wherever that may be. The WOODSTOCK wine portfolio includes a range of fresh aromatic whites, opulent yet finely structured reds and finally, an eclectic selection of after-dinner wines.

We believe in capturing natural acidity and fresh grape characters in our whites and rosé.

WOODSTOCK reds are all about smooth tannins and purity of fruit. As grape tannins age on the vines, they become less bitter making their wines softer. WOODSTOCK reds are soft and approachable when young, yet with structure to age with cellaring.

 

Our aim is to put together balanced table wines with all the building blocks necessary for them to grow in flavour profile and intensity with careful cellaring.

WOODSTOCK founder Doug Collett had the foresight to make fortifieds to benefit future generations of wine lovers. His son Scott, continues those footsteps and releases consistent, evolving  quality classics.

Written Notes

A single vineyard wine, made from just 31 rows of low-yielding shiraz planted around 1900, the grapes for this wine were harvested just before the heatwave of 2008. Maker Scott Collett estimates 3 bottles per vine. Seriously good for an '08. Sweet core of fruit, lots of chocolate-y flavours. Seriously good length. No surprise that Ben Glaetzer has a hand here. A mix of black fruits and raspberry notes. Well integrated oak, fine tannins and great length.
