Woodstock Octogenarian Grenache/Tempranillo, McLaren Vale, Australia

£15.50 per bottle


All prices include VAT

The Woodstock winery is located in McLaren Vale, just south of Adelaide. Whilst it is very much an Australian producer, its name actually derives from England. In the quaint town of Woodstock in Oxfordshire stands a set of wooden leg stocks. In Medieval times, these stocks were used to punish the local townsfolk who had over imbibed. As a cheeky nod to the town’s history, Woodstock has named its flagship wine, the ‘Stocks’ Shiraz.

The name might be a mouthful, but so is the wine. Born from 80 year old grenache vines (with 15 percent tempranillo added), this sumptuous, savoury drop is a big-occasion wine.  Medium bodied, food friendly, showing intense fruit purity, delicate with a touch of spice, supple yet textural….. all describe The OCTOgenarian. Stylishly made from chiefly Granache grapes, the addition of a good dollop of Tempranillo provides savoury tannins and complexity.
