Woodhenge is a monument to "BIG" ideas and to a unique vision of what makes Wirra Wirra special and well, a bloody big fence that weighs about 10 tonnes.

Think rich blackberries and plums with dark chocolate. The nose is complex with vanilla and all spice and layered with smoky oak. The palate has wonderful density with dark fruits and cedary oak notes. It is mouth filling with great depth and the plush tannins and structure provide a long and supple line.
96/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"This is very good. A plush pasture of black fruits of every description, liquorice, bonbon and bitter chocolate, is deftly pruned by firm framing tannins, each impeccably detailed. The oak is beautifully integrated, tucked in behind the veneer of polish. This boasts the Vale’s telltale richness married to restraining structural pillars.
5 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2017 (2015 Vintage) 
"The “Woodhenge” is a timber construction outside the Wirra Wirra winery, a reflection of the quirky sensibilities of Wirra’s late founder Greg Trott. The estate’s wines speak eloquently of McLaren Vale soil, marrying tradition with modernity. This is a rich, warm shiraz of good concentration and length. Oak is folded seamlessly in, acidity is fresh and tannins are ripe."
92/100 Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Aromas of blackberry, black licorice and blueberry follow through to a full body, tangy fruit and vanilla with oak at the finish. Juicy and uplifting. Drinkable now but better in 2019."
90/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Smells good, rich and inviting, typical of robust McLaren Vale Shiraz. Blackberry, sweet spice and vanilla, toast, light earthiness, plenty of chocolate. Full bodied, perfumed and thick, with pretty earthy tannin, a little glow of alcohol warmth, bold flavour, some saltiness, and a robust tannic finish – almost sticky. The acidity is a little bit too fresh and edgy for me, but it’s a wine that will please many."
90/100 Decanter Asia Wine Awards, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Rich and complex with layered notes of eucalyptus/sage/tea leaf and tight, firm tannins.The evolution of this wine will be compelling to watch."
