Woodstock are made to an elegant yet generous style. In the vineyard, the key is to manage leaf canopies carefully ensuring only the best fruit is produced. The number of leaves are reduced to ensure perfect ripening of berries, permitting good exposure to sunlight and air. Yields are deliberately kept low for good flavour concentration. The best Italian crushers are employed for their gentleness and ability to modulate according to taste. The finished wine is treated to eighteen months in a selection of small, seasoned and new French and American oak barrels, enhancing without dominating the palate, retaining strong varietal expression as complimented by soft, toasty flavours. Alcohol 15.0%
Deep black purple hues. Bursts of blackcurrant, violets and choc mint, licorice, black olives and bay. The palate is full and rich in flavour, lush dark berries coat the mouth while savoury tannins and supporting cedary oak form the structure to encase the fruit as it lingers, retaining the bramble and chocolate savouryness which are so articulate of McLaren Vale Cabernet.
