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.
Grape Varieties: Semillon 70%, Sauvignon Blanc 30%
Farming Practices: Sustainable / minimal spray & vegan friendly.
Tasting Notes: Picked early to preserve the natural tropical flavours and cool fermented to dry. The bouquet is lifted with passion-fruit and tropical fruit aromas and hints of lemon and lime.
The palate is balanced by tight, clean refreshing acidity and lingering with lychees and mango fruit nuances. A fruity yet dry style to be enjoyed young.
