Woodstock Pilot's View Shiraz
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: Shiraz 100%.
Farming Practices: Sustainable / minimal spray.
Tasting Notes: Less intense than the Stocks but still a big bold beast. Lower concentration makes acids seem higher, meaning it is a better partner for food. Great example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Plums, spice and a typical chocolate notes. Vanillan oak.
