TASTING NOTES

Very soft and approachable in youth, with a long, silky-smooth finish. Under this soft exterior is a solid backbone of ripe, long layered grape and oak rounded tannins with no sharp edges. ‘The Stocks’ single vineyard personality will grow through the initial primary fruit and vanillin oak flavours resulting in a complex and sleek demeanour. A powerful elegant wine which can cellar for over a decade.

DESCRIPTION

The old vines on sandy soils are inspected thoroughly during veraison each January; exposed bunches are removed to prevent sunburn and hidden bunches are thinned to ensure even ripening. Ideally, each remaining bunch will have about two leaves between them and the sun. Yields are deliberately kept low (average yield is about three bottles per vine) and the vineyard essentially dry grown resulting in intense concentration of flavour. The Shiraz fruit is harvested at night to preserve the delicate berry flavours. The grapes are then crushed and cold soaked for 24 hours before fermentation in small open fermenters and hand plunged twice daily for at least 5 days. The wine is pressed and then finishes ferment in carefully selected French and American oak barrels in a temperature controlled cellar. Each barrel is monitored, and only the finest selected to continue the lineage of Woodstock ‘The Stocks’ Shiraz.
