Woodstock’s Very Old Fortified is a genuine “rare,” tawny style fortified, skillfully blended from 70% Grenache and 30% Shiraz. Each varietal is matured separately in 100 to 300 litre oak casks for 20 years or more (currently holding an average age of 23 years in the final blend). 4-5% of the product is lost to evaporation from each barrel each year. Compared with “Rare” Rutherglen fortifieds now selling in excess of $60, this is an amazing bargain for top quality, decades old, tawny material.
Translucent, deep sienna brown colour with onion brown tones over a green olive hue. Raisin, rancio top note, followed by toffee, caramel, prune and nut. On the palate, the raisin flavours are very pronounced, with raisin layers over a very spicy back palate. Clean finish. Very long aftertaste of honey, toffee, caramel and spice.
