Cool Woods range of wines are produced by Thorn-Clarke winery in the Barossa, South Australia please visit the website at http://www.coolwoodswines.com.
The name Cool Woods was inspired by the rolling hills and scattered ‘big gums’ at our Angaston vineyard. These hills were once heavily forested with eucalypt, settlement of the region in the mid 1800s resulted in clearing of large grazing properties by the early settlers – today some of the gums still standing on our property are over 200 years old.
The photo on our website which inspired the Cool Woods label was taken from our cellar door, on many a cold winter morning the old gums are the first thing that can be seen as the thick fog clears. Standing alongside our vineyard, these old trees would have seen some changes over the years – from early settlers arriving, to a working dairy and now a premium cool climate winery.
Cool Woods wines are produced with fruit from this Eden Valley vineyard, along with grapes sourced from other South Australian winemaking regions.
Combining our own fruit with grapes from other regions ensures that each vintage displays consistency, fantastic fruit qualities along with good varietal character and acid structure – ensuring the whites are crisp and clean, and the reds full of flavour and well balanced.
