Woodstock Old Fortified Tawny Style 37.5cl 19.5% ABV
The Woodstock winery is located in McLaren Vale, just south of Adelaide. Whilst it is very much an Australian producer, its name actually derives from England. In the quaint town of Woodstock in Oxfordshire stands a set of wooden leg stocks. In Medieval times, these stocks were used to punish the local townsfolk who had over imbibed.
This fortified wine has raisin characters on the nose with orange zest aromas and a glimpse of Christmas pudding evident. Decadent, luscious lingering toffee and grape sweetness tempts the sweet tooth in you. This wine was deliberately bottled unfiltered to retain its viscosity and fullness.
