Wirra Wirra Woodhenge Shiraz 2012

The inky blackness within is what is first noticed, the aromatics of blue fruit, cherry, chocolate and florals next. Cedary spice and a little toasty oak - it sees 17 months in wood, 35% of which is new.

Smooth, lithe and medium-full in body - a surprise at its lightness, for a 'Woodhenge' carries a certain, expectation perhaps, of a weighty wine - with blueberry, black fruit and cherry. There's latent spice, a touch of fruitcake, and cedar rounding out the palate.

Tanning is fine, wrapping up a wine of substance, persistence. Will go well in the cellar too, 8-10 years easily. 93
