The Mate's Rate
Very Highly Recommended, today’s delicious 2006 Wirra Wirra Woodhenge McLaren Vale Shiraz is a truly exceptional and ultra-delicious wine that our entire tasting panel went absolutely crazy for.
This wonderful wine is loaded with dense, delicious fruit flavors, deep aromatics and an ultra-long finish. Ready and delicious, right on opening, give this wine a few minutes to breathe and it comes to life, revealing additional flavors and a softer overall feel.
Enjoy with a rare prime rib or a delicious peppered steak. Just don’t miss out on this really fantastic wine.
Dense and dark, with inky garnet hues. Darker through the core, this wine shows lovely ruby highlights when held up to the light as the wine spins in the glass. Along the edges, the color remains dense and when swirled, skinny, widely spaced tears retain the color of the wine as they move very slowly down the glass.
Layered, lush and bold, with dark mixed berries, plum, smoked dried meats, dried fennel, and burnt caramel. As the wine opens up, it reveals dark cocoa, dark roasted coffee bean, toasted oak, sweet dark pipe tobacco and dark leather.
Big and bold, with delicious layers of dark flavors, lead by mixed blackberry and blueberry jam, dark plum, black cherry, smoked meats, tobacco and subtle, dark-toasted oak.
Ultra long and very delicious. Big and bold, with classic, ripe Shiraz flavors that spread all around the palate before very gradually tailing off.
