After an absence in our store we have now received some of the new vintages of Woodstock wines look out for the following varietals...
Banana and passionfruit aromas leap from the glass and continue to linger on the palate leaving a dry, crisp aftertaste. drink now or cellar for a few years asthe wine becomes more complex over ime
Serve with Linguine pasta with Gulf king prawns, rocket and chilli.
Fine tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon provide backbone and structure while fleshy Shiraz enriches the body. Both varieties combine with elegance and savoury length. Tight and youthful when bottled, the wine will evolve over time and reward with more complex flavours.
Rich flavours of blackberries, rhubarb and toasty oak open up to a soft, fleshy middle palate to create a balanced, savoury lingering finish. The 2012 vintage of Woodstock Cabernet Sauvignon has bright acid and firm yet elegant tannins wrapped in a smooth, warm richness. This is a wine that will reward six to ten years of cool cellaring allowing the savoury flavours to add to its complexity and roundness.
