The Woodhenge is a not so small ‘post and rail’ fence outside of the Wirra Wirra winery. Think Stonehenge – but made of wood. Heavy and solid. Thankfully the Wirra Wirra Woodhenge Shiraz doesnt have anywhere near the wood as the Woodhenge fence.
The Wirra Wirra Woodhenge Shiraz leans more toward the traditional McLaren Vale Shiraz style of being, riper and fuller bodied, with typical dark chocolate and black olive brine notes in the mix.
On the palate there’s mouth-filling dark fruit, ripe plums and dried fig. Bitter chocolate and spice has me thinking of pan-forte. Tannins are as sturdy as the Woodhenge fence and support everything. Easily cellar for 5-10 years.
