The Woodhouse Wine Estates 2014 Kennedy Shah Reserve Riesling

This Riesling has a taste of honey, yet without a trace of sweetness; it smells of petrol, yet is utterly delicious. It is both rich and light, fresh and intense. And the best will mature for decades, darkening to a warm amber and increasing in depth and complexity.

The Woodhouse Wine Estates 2015 Kennedy Shah Reserve La Vie en Rouge

There is an intense floral frame around the red and black cherry fruit in this savory red, with alluring black tea and light chalky minerality on the finish.

The Woodhouse Wine Estates 2015 Kennedy Shah Reserve Malbec

This wine shows dark currant, blackberry, and crushed red plum flavors that are supported by a fresh acidity. It offers a crisp, spicy finish with hints of dark chocolate.

The Woodhouse Wine Estates 2015 Kennedy Shah Reserve Tempranillo

Earthy, toasty and espresso flavors dominate in this big savory wine. Plum, licorice and mineral. The full tannins are well integrated and balanced with lively acidity. A truly harmonious finish.

The Woodhouse Wine Estates 2014 Kennedy Shah Reserve Cabernet Franc

A very solid, muscular style with a gusty structure, blackberry, black currant and roasted tobacco leaf notes. Broad and smoky through the finish, this features violet and sweet tapenade with persistence.

Woodhouse Wine Estates 2014 Kennedy Shah Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

A fresh pure style with lots of floral and black tea notes. Red currant, plum and raspberry coulis flavors. A finish with mouthwatering fruits and lovely perfume that should develop more with time.
