Woodhenge is a monument to “big” ideas and to Greg Trott’s unique vision of what makes Wirra Wirra special and well, a bloody big fence that weighs about 10 tonnes. Our spin on the classic McLaren Vale style it is rich and bold with mouth-filling fruits and fine sandy tannins that give it a long and persistent finish, built to go the distance.

Colour

Deep crimson with a magenta edge.

Bouquet

Ripe mulberry, blood plums, cocoa and sweet spices along with blue fruits and hints of fruitcake.

Palate

Rich with voluptuous fruit and dense with velvety tannins, the palate is remarkably generous and plush. There are notes of earth and leather, and oak contributions of mocha, cedar and vanilla biscuit. A McLaren Vale Shiraz in the classic style, the wine is full but supple, liqueur-ish and long.

Professional Reviews

Classic McLaren Vale shiraz, with excellent density and brightness. Extraordinary fruit intensity with dried cherry, ripe plum and blackberry jam plus hints of vanilla bean, clove, chocolate and liquorice. An appropriate tannin layer frames the fruit. It’s a wine for those who like their reds rich and concentrated. Top value.

Toni Paterson, The Real Review 94

This has a deeply ripe and very attractive style with such fresh red-fruit aromas, as well as notes of blood oranges. The palate has a very fine thread of mid-palate, grainy tannin that carries raspberry and chocolate flavors long and fresh. Drink or hold.

Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com 92

A generously flavoured and well structured wine that insists on flame-grilled beef to soften its angularity.
