2011 GOOD FOOD AND WINE SHOWS...
A big welcome to all our new subscribers and thank you for taking the
time to visit us at the Good Food and Wine Shows in Melbourne, Sydney
This Month's Special
and Perth this year! It was fun taking many of you through a Woodstock
wine journey and showing you our latest releases. As always, the
Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Woodstock Rosé were huge
hits and we had lots of interest in all our reds and dessert wines. For
those who purchased at the shows, we hope you are enjoying the wines.
Do drop us a note if we can help with any information on the wines or if
you would like to restock your cellar!

AN OLD FAVOURITE AT WOODSTOCK… Restaurant Menu
With a firm belief that wines are made to be consumed with food, the
Collett family built Woodstock Coterie Restaurant in 1988. Scott’s love for
nature ensured all significant trees were marked and a building designed
to nestle amongst the towering century old gum trees, hence the Coterie’s
unique semi-circle shape. Rammed earth walls were chosen to complement
the landscape, glass doors and windows enable wide views to tranquil
native gardens teaming with birdlife and the occasional wondering koala.
When the restaurant first opened, we served a Woodstock Regional Platter
with a selection of local produce ideal for grazing over a few tasting
glasses. Today, the platter is still a favourite among our regulars Follow Woodstock Wine
and we‘ve received plenty of reports that the much revered Woodstock Estate on Facebook
Turkey and Muscat Paté, made from turkey livers sourced from the
Fleurieu region and finished with our very own Woodstock Muscat, is still a
highlight on the platter. We have had many requests over the years from First Name
diehard paté lovers. Next time you are at The Adelaide Central Markets or
on The Parade in Norwood SA, do call into either Lucia’s or Norwood Fine
Foods if you’d like to try some. Alternatively little tubs are available at our Last Name
Cellar Door for $9 each. To avoid disappointment, we suggest you ring
(08) 8383 0156 and book ahead. They are made every Tuesday in our
Woodstock Kitchen. Email
As for a good wine match, we suggest trying it with a cheeky little sticky… Submit
our Woodstock Botrytis Semillon to kick start a dinner party. Serve
Woodstock Paté on warm crusty sourdough bread with a nice chilled glass
of Botrytis Semillon!

WOODSTOCK VERY OLD FORTIFIED...
Have you tried the Woodstock Very Old Fortified lately? This tawny
port style wine is made from a blend of many vintages, and is a Your Email
pretty decadent treat!
Typically, Grenache and Shiraz ferments are fortified with the

addition of grape spirit when about half the natural sugar remains, Friend's First Name
the spirit kills yeast and preserves the remaining sweetness. The
wine is clarified and then matured in 100 to 300 litre oak casks for
20 or more years. Each year, 4 to 5% is lost to evaporation from Friend's Last Name
each barrel, but the luscious flavours evolve and concentrate as
the wine matures. The parcels are kept separately then added
when blending to ensure freshness, complexity and consistency.
The original parcel at Woodstock was made by the late Doug Submit
Collett AM over 37 years ago. Today, Scott Collett enjoys the task
of continuing the port wine tradition, sourcing, cellaring, blending
and bottling small amounts as required.
The Very Old Fortified keeps for up to 8-10 months after opening,
so it‘s a perfect wine to have on the occasional winter night to
warm the soul. Enjoy with a coffee, chocolates or cigars… and if
you are ever stuck for a dessert idea, grab some vanilla pod ice
cream, pour a shot glass of Very Old Fortified over and serve with
a smashed up Ferrero Rocher for an easy, delicious dessert!
