Wirra Wirra Woodhenge shiraz

Upon entry to Wirra Wirra, every visitor passes Woodhenge, a 10-tonne post and rail fence made from raw, ancient redgum trunks. Built by hand, it is reminiscent of a fence from an early settler’s bush cottage, that is, if the cottage was inhabited by giants. Woodhenge endures as a monument to the late re-builder of Wirra Wirra, Greg Trott, his grandiose ideas and unique vision. Rich and full-bodied, the depth of fruit generosity is wrapped around grainy, wellstructured tannins. The combination gives both volume and length to the palate. The characters of dusky-red ripe fruits, 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. Food match: Dry aged grilled steak, or a roast of kipflers, butternut, leek and garlic.
