Woodstock Shiraz
WOODSTOCK SHIRAZ 2015 Australia [75cl]

Considered the “hero” variety of the region, WOODSTOCK Shiraz is usually sourced from WOODSTOCK Estate and neighbouring vineyards in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. These vines are grown in sandy soils which contribute the floral aromatics to WOODSTOCK Shiraz. The ratio between bunches and leaves are closely monitored to ensure vineyard balance, so that each vine can deliver full, ripe flavours to each bunch.

When tasting this Shiraz, generosity of colour and flavour are clear and evident. The vibrant, floral and spicy bouquet brings together both red and black fruits like cherries and plums. The classic McLaren Vale earthiness comes through on the palate which balances the fruit concentration and the soft yet structured tannins. This 2013 Shiraz has great richness on both nose and palate which will evolve into secondary characters with careful cellaring for up to 10 years.

Best served with char-grilled or roast beef served with pepper sauce and wilted baby spinach or a selection of cured meats and smoked cheddar.
