Wirra Wirra Woodhenge Shiraz 2021
Woodhenge is a unique vision of what makes McLaren Vale such a special red wine making region. Woodhenge Shiraz is true to both its namesake and the luscious Shiraz style that is the calling card for McLaren Vale. A spin on the McLaren Vale style it is rich and bold with mouth-filling fruits and fine sandy tannins that give it a persistent and long finish, designed to go the distance.
Deep garnet with bright ruby edges. After the volumes of dark plums, blackberries and florals (think violets), find all-spice and fruitcake notes, vanilla, toast and cocoa. Rich and full-bodied, the depth of fruit generosity is wrapped around grainy, well-structured tannins. The combination gives both volume and length to the palate. The characters of dusky-red ripe fruit, oak derived spices and cedar notes, and the savoury, mineral tannins have combined for layered complexity. Pleasingly, this very substantial wine remains fresh and youthful throughout, with the promise of great things to come.
