Winemaker / Tasting Notes

Woodstock has a proud tradition of after-dinner wines dating back to the 1950’s when Doug Collett started his winemaking career. His son Scott Collett keeps the fine old “Ports” maturing in Doug’s original barrels and also occasionally makes single vintage fortified styles, such as this.

Rich ripe black cherries, fruit pastilles with underlying spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and hints of mocha. These fruit and savoury characters follow on the palate with additional complexity and concentration of flavour. The astringency of fruit tannin and acid balances the sweetness leaving a warm-ing long aftertaste and an empty glass looking for a refill. Cellaring will help soften the tannins and integrate the rich fruit characters to develop and evolve into a smooth digestive style, to be enjoyed in the decades to come.
