They cleared the scrub and planted 96 acres of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and White Hermitage in 1891 WOMS is an exclusively estate grown effort, mostly Shiraz from vines established in 1961, with a third of Cabernet Sauvignon picked off blocks planted 1970 to 1985. Fruit is vinified in static fermenters and pumped over twice daily. WOMS was pressed then transferred to a selection of mostly new Burgundian oak barriques for completion of malolactic, racked and returned to barrel, regularly topped up and racked again after a year. Matured for a full term of eighteen months before bottling without fining or filtration.
Purple crimson colour. Blackberries, mulberry and canned cherries on the bouquet with hints of charry oak. Black cherries, vanilla, some saddle leather characters appear on the palate. WOMS offers layer upon layer of brooding, briary fruit confronted by stunning oak and thick blocks of chocolatey tannin. The fruit is actually quite solid but repressed by oak and tannin at the moment, fruit will prevail. An elegant, savoury wine.
