Woodstock Very Old Fortified 20 Year Old
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.
