Woodhenge is a monument to `big` ideas and to Greg Trott's unique vision of what makes Wirra Wirra special and well, a bloody big fence that weighs about 10 tonnes. This wine is a tribute to the region, the grape variety and the foresight of a wine man that, like woodhenge, typifies the individuality of McLaren Vale.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red with a bright edge.
Fragrant bouquet of ripe plums, rich raspberries, polished leather with bitter chocolate and sweet cedar nuances.
The palate is rich and fleshy with layers of Satsuma plum and raspberries interwoven with nutmeg and aniseed spice. The bold yet soft fruits are balanced with fine sandy tannins resulting in a wine with structural power, great length and style.
Cellar for 8 – 13 years.
Scotch fillet steak sandwich with dill gherkins and duck fat frites.
A legacy worth drinking... As a tribute to Greg Trott's unique vision of that which has always made Wirra Wirra special, we have named our McLaren Vale Shiraz after the massive post-and-rail fence only Trott could have dreamed of and that now greets visitors to the winery.
Woodhenge is essentially in the mould of the fences early settlers would erect, but on a cyclopean scale, with posts more than two metres in diameter, some weighing over three tonnes. Less fence, more elemental sculpture, Woodhenge is a monument to "big" ideas.
