Wirra Wirra Woodhenge Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Woodhenge is about big ideas, in the manner of cyclopean fences built by Australia's early settlers. A wine of great elemental sculpture, the assemblage of individual vineyard and sub-regional characteristics is the key to success of the style. Woodhenge has previously claimed Decanter World Wine Regional Trophy and Gold Visyboard Great Australian Shiraz Challenge. Bold and tightly knit, incorporating ripe berry fruit and integrated oak balanced by velvety tannins, Woodhenge Shiraz, like it's namesake edifice, is solidly structured and imposing.

A legacy well worth toasting, named after the massive post and rail fence that now greets visitors to the Wirra Wirra wineworks. Shiraz from estate vineyards and good McLaren Vale growers is gently crushed, destemmed into open top and static fermenters, tasted twice daily to determine optimum number of daily plunges and pumpovers for extraction. Once pressed, parcels are moved to oak for completion of ferments, rack and returned every four months. The wine was assembled at fifteen months of age and returned to oak for two months before an egg white fining. Matured a total of seventeen months in a high proportion of new French and American oak barriques and hogsheads.
Deep red, bright edges. Fragrant bouquet of ripe plum, rich raspberries, polished leather with bitter chocolate and sweet cedar. The palate is rich and fleshy with layers of Satsuma plum and raspberries interwoven with nutmeg and aniseed spice. The bold yet soft fruits are balanced with fine sandy tannins resulting in a wine with structural power, great length and style. To accompany Scotch fillet steak with dill gherkins and fresh cut kipflers.
