The 2008 Woodcutter’s is a big, but impeccably well-balance Shiraz. The nose is fragrant with blueberry, blackcurrant, raisin, savoury, violet, clove and smoky. Palate is smooth with generous fruit, balance acidity, well integrated oak and velvet tannins. The finish is long, rich and layered. Very comforting wine here.

My first experience with Woodcutter's Shiraz involved a near stampede at a Vintages release. I managed to secure a few bottles for myself and promptly opened one to see what all the fuss was about... This is a very big wine for the price; loads of black fruit on the nose with hints of spice and coffee. Full bodied and very new-world with a smooth mix of chocolate and stewed fruit followed by a solid hit of that Shiraz spice on the finish. Very nice. (northof9finewine, March 2011)
