The majority of our wines are sourced from the 18.44 hectares of McLaren Vale vineyards planted at the Woodstock Estate, which lies between McLaren Flat and Blewitt Springs, east of the town of McLaren Vale. Scott’s close proximity and deep understanding of these vineyards over many years allows us to maintain the strict quality benchmarks of maximum flavour and intensity for which the Woodstock Estate is rightly known.
The varieties planted are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon and Montepulciano.
- Shiraz 6.79ha
- Cabernet Sauvignon 5.49ha
- Grenache 3.25ha
- Riesling 1ha
- Semillon 1.04ha
- Chardonnay 0.44ha
- Montepulciano 0.43ha
Woodstock Estate is lucky to boast some of the oldest vineyards in Mclaren Vale, with our flagship The Stocks Vineyard planted circa 1900, a bush vine Grenache vineyard which was planted in 1930, and even our ‘young’ vineyards being planted in the early 1970-80s.
Although not yet certified organic, our vines are treated with minimal impact sprays and no pesticides. All weeds are pulled by hand or with a brush cutter. We tend our vine canopies by hand, and if required the vines are leaf plucked or crop thinned to ensure even ripening and good concentration of berry flavours.
