Background
The hero variety of the region, Woodstock Shiraz is sourced from Woodstock Estate and neighbouring vineyards in the Vale. Being a very vigorous red variety, the key is to manage our Shiraz leaf cano-pies carefully to ensure the best from our Shiraz vines.

Winemaking
Crop yields are deliberately kept low with hand pruning. This ensures full ripening and flavour development. After fermentation on skins for about 5 days, this Shiraz was barrel aged for up to 14 months in carefully selected French and American oak barrels. 15% sees new oak barrels while the rest mature in 2 to 3 year old oak for complex-ity without oak domination.

The Wine
A stylish and vibrant Shiraz showing bursts of blackcurrants, spice and subtle hints of choc mint. The palate is full and rich in flavour, lush dark berries coat the mouth while savoury tannins provide an alluring texture that lingers. A food friendly wine and a classic exam-ple of McLaren Vale Shiraz in the glass.

Serving Suggestion
Beef Bourguignon on roasted new potatoes, smoked speck, Swiss brown mushrooms, carrot and celery with crispy pancetta and Bourguignon jus.
