Woodhenge is the result of a fantasy exposed over a dinner at McLaren Vale’s Salopian Inn. Greg Trott, the late owner of Wirra Wirra wanted to build a post and rail fence on a cyclopean scale, using massive red gum timber sourced from the Flinders Ranges. It was Salopian Inn’s chef, Russell Jeavons who offered to construct the monument with pieces weighing as much as three tonnes!
A Classic example of rich opulent McLaren Vale Shiraz
Matured for 17 months in a combination of French & American oak barriques and hogsheads of which 35% was new. Totally opaque inky black dark purple colour with a deep very dark purple hue. Excellent aromatics with aromas of liquorice, ripe blackberries and dark plum wafting out of the glass followed by some dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spice. Rich and boldly flavoured with a fleshy opulent texture the palate is filled with ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and liquorice over subtlety toasted vanillin oak with some spice on the finish. Silky smooth tannins with a long persistent aftertaste of ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark chocolate and spicy vanillin cedar.
Cellar 5-6 years.
This is serious stuff, a densely coloured, rich tapestry of blackberry, licorice, oak, tannins and leather. The texture, structure and balance are those of a great wine with a great future. Drink by 2037.
