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. As a cheeky nod to the town’s history, Woodstock has named its flagship wine, the ‘Stocks’ Shiraz.
Tasting Notes: Pale translucent pink hues. Intense musk aromas on the nose with an underlying tropical fruit character. Similar to the nose, the palate starts off with nuances of musk and rosewater, followed by star fruit and tropical banana flavours.
The fruit sweetness on the mid-plate is balanced off nicely with a zingy, lemon sherbet finish. Fine beads help to fill the mouth with flavour while natural grape acids balance the fruity Muscat sweetness.
