$20.00

The conditions over the 2015/16 summer were extremely dry. This put the grapes under great stress. A small amount of rain just prior to the harvest meant that the grapes were able to achieve satisfactory ripeness. Although these grapes were picked at a lower sugar level than I prefer, the wine still shows powerful varietal nose and palate. As per normal from Woodman’s vineyard, this wine exhibits an extremely long, flavoursome palate, since it comes from 90 year old vines.

As with all the wines that have come from that vineyard, it will age superbly, and easily achieve 10 years of age, and more.
