The beauty of old vine McLaren Vale Grenache is on display in this stunning red, with the lucid red fruit and open generosity that the best Grenache is known for, but backed with richer flavours through the middle.

Woodstock have nailed the style here, showing why Grenache is enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - David Bicknell - Halliday's Wine CompanionSourced from 90+yo vines grown in sandy soils. Dark garnet-red and concentrated looking. More savoury than sweet on both nose and palate - dry earth and brown spice, then layers of poached plum, mulberry preserve and cranberry sauce. Tannins are fine and smooth, and woven through an uncluttered palate. Maturation without barrels a master stroke.
93 Points - Campbell Mattinson - The Wine FrontIt takes time to open up but once it does it’s a beaut. Perfumed, spicy, earthen and ripped with redcurrant-y fruit. Totally and utterly delicious. Woodsy spice notes crackle and pop throughout. Emery board tannin. Fresh and frisky but not lacking substance.

How's it taste?

Bright colour and lifted aromas of cherries, plums and raspberries. Lively and expressive on both nose and palate, this Grenache captures true McLaren Vale characters; silky structure with subtle complexities making it very easy drinking with mouth-watering and lingering fruit characters.

How was it made?

Grapes were traditionally fermented on skins and pumped over twice daily. In 2015, the reduced Tempranillo component was fermented separately and aged in old oak barrels before approx. 5% was blended with the Grenache, adding some savoury notes to the finish of this wine.
