Description

The Pilots View Shiraz is made to a style to be consumed as a companion to food, typically big and sweet-fruited for McLaren Value but with tight acidity and gripping tannins. On the nose, there’s lots of juicy dark berries, spice and an underlying earthiness, a characteristic distinctively evident in wines from McLaren Vale. The palate is well balanced with a burst of red berries and plums intermingled with subtle vanilla bean, mixed spices and traces of well integrated oak. Supple, savoury, textured, fine grain tannins leave you wanting more. Six months on lees in barrel contribute to the supple tannin texture, with the wine aged for 14 months in equal parts of both new French and American oak barrels.

Producer: Woodstock

Woodstock is located in South Australia's McLaren Vale, arguably the country's top wine region for big, booming reds.

Modern founder Doug Collett caught the wine bug while flying Spitfires over Europe for the Royal Australian Air Force during World War 2, admiring the vineyards below as he went and savouring the local wines while on leave - as you do!

Son Scott Collett is the current patriarch with one of Australia's winemaking superstars Ben Glaetzer (Robert Parker's a BIG fan!) overseeing production and blending.

    This Shiraz from Woodstock is only available "on premise" (i.e. only by stumbling across it on a restaurant wine list) which is a pity, because it's a lovely red. It's hearty and rich but it's nicely finessed too. It tastes of blackberries and bright raspberries and carries a delicious clip of coffeed, vanillin, smoky oak. It's a very classy McLaren Vale Shiraz. There's a spot of spiciness and maybe even the odd truffle-like note. Tannin is very, very fine. I loved drinking it.
