Woodstock Shiraz 2008

Another great Shiraz from Woodstock with all the typical traits. Super dark fruit with a purple hue.
The usual suspects on the nose here - dark chocolate and vanilla with some sweet oak. The sweet oak was more noticable than expected. Even a tad of eucaplyt in there too I reckon.
Take one sip and you'll be hooked. A full and rounded mouth (14.5% abv) with delicious blackberries and chocolate. Soft and long finish with lovely spice to tickle the taste buds and enough to coax you into another sip. And let's face it, you don't need the coaxing!
Top gear.
