William Louis Townsend was granted a Crown Lease in McLaren Vale circa 1905, he made it his home, establishing the original vineyard. It has been known as Woodstock ever since. Doug Collett A.M developed a taste for wine while flying Spitfires over the vineyards of Europe. He was inspired to study Oenology at Roseworthy Agricultural College and graduated to manage Australia's biggest wineworks at Berri Estates. Collett acquired the Woodstock property in 1973, establishing Cabernet vines adjacent to the Stocks in 1988.
Woodstock are made to an elegant yet generous style. In the vineyard, the key is to manage leaf canopies carefully ensuring only the best fruit is produced. The number of leaves are reduced to ensure perfect ripening of berries, permitting good exposure to sunlight and air. Yields are deliberately kept low for good flavour concentration. The best Italian crushers are employed for their gentleness and ability to modulate according to taste. The finished wine is treated to eighteen months in a selection of small, seasoned and new French and American oak barrels, enhancing without dominating the palate, retaining strong varietal expression as complimented by soft, toasty flavours. Alcohol 15.0%
TASTING NOTES
Deep black purple hues. Bursts of blackcurrant, violets and choc mint, licorice, black olives and bay. The palate is full and rich in flavour, lush dark berries coat the mouth while savoury tannins and supporting cedary oak form the structure to encase the fruit as it lingers, retaining the bramble and chocolate savouryness which are so articulate of McLaren Vale Cabernet.

More About Woodstock Wines
Woodstock's founder, Doug Collett A.M. discovered a taste for wine whilst serving as a pilot for the Royal Australian Air Force, and the Royal Air Force in North Africa, Syria, Palestine and Italy
As a reconnaissance and fighter pilot in Spitfires, Hurricanes and lighter aircraft, Doug observed the vast vineyards of Europe and developed an interest in wine. After studying Oenology at Roseworthy Agricultural College after the war, Doug soon took charge of Australia's biggest winery at Berri in South Australia's Riverland. Doug developed a special regard for the McLaren Vale region, its climate, natural beauty, its full-bodied wines and their rich middle palate flavour. Woodstock»
