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.

- South Australia
Darkly coloured and jam-packed with blackberry, tar, anise and a lick of dried herbs. Plush and expansive, finely grained tannins hold everything in check. Long, and requiring many years. Rating 95 - Drink by 2028, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2016)

Deep plum with a bright crimson hue.
A vibrant, full spectrum of red, blue and black fruits with an earthy, peaty depth. Layers of vanilla, dark chocolate and oak spices add further rich complexity.
A dense core of satsuma plums and dark berry fruits layered with spice and leather. The mouth filling fruits are balanced by compact, fine tannins providing a wine of weight, structure and persistence.
