Flaunting a dark red colour, this is a richly flavoured Shiraz which opens with aromas of spice and red berry fruit on the nose, which follow through to the palate. The palate is filled with sweet and ripe tannins balanced by a complex acid structure, giving this wine brilliant concentration and complexity. The wine tastes best when paired with beef, lamb and game dishes.
The Woodstock winery is located in McLaren Vale, just south of Adelaide. Whilst it is very much an Australian producer, its name actually derives from England. In the quaint town of Woodstock in Oxfordshire stands a set of wooden leg stocks.
In Medieval times, these stocks were used to punish the local townsfolk who had over imbibed.
