About The Wine

The Woodvale Woodberry Shiraz is made by respected Clare Valley winemaker Kevin Mitchell.

This is a powerful Clare Valley Shiraz from a 60+-year-old, dry grown vineyard. The bunches are tiny and densely packed with flavour. The oak used is top-flight.

Kevin Mitchell's house style writ large.

The 2014 received 96 points from James Halliday and 94 points from Campbell Mattinson and was one of the wines which saw Woodvale named as one of James Halliday's Top Ten Best New Wineries for 2018.

A great option for those who want classic, rich and robust Shiraz from South Australia.

Critic Reviews

96Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked from a single vineyard in Watervale planted '55, fermented on skins for 10 days, matured in French hogsheads (35% new). Deep colour, although not as dense as Spring Gardens; a high quality shiraz that is, relatively speaking, light on its feet. It has a fresh, gently savoury, edge to black fruits and fine-grained tannins. It has also taken the oak into the folds of its fruits in convincing fashion." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"That extra something. It’s much like the ‘standard’ shiraz in its flavour profile but there’s an extra lob of (well integrated) oak and extra push to the finish. It’s a better wine. It tastes of boysenberry, blackberry, dense plum and asphalt, with elements of clove, violet and gum leaf prettying up the edges. Tannin swerves confidently through the back palate and out through the finish, drawing flavour with it. Impeccable." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

A hand picked, single vineyard cuvee’ from the Woodberry vineyard just north of the Watervale township. This dry grown, 63 year old vineyard always delivers, its small yields and compact berries an infused compote of dark fruits, black cherries, hints of fresh liquorice as well as supportive French oak intertwined with fine grained tannins and a long finish.

Fermented on skins for 10 days, basket pressed, aged in a selection of new and seasoned French oak casks for 18 months prior to being bottling un-fined and unfiltered.

Will continue to improve for a further 12 – 15 years.
