Winter Newsletter – August 2015

Hi Everyone
We hope you’re all braving the cold…and if you are lucky enough to be relishing in some summery weather…then we are SO jealous!!
Just a quick update on the happenings of Woodsoak Wines:
  • We have a brand new wine that is about to be bottled – our 2015 Santi Sauvignon Blanc.  We will officially release Santi at The Bookshop in Robe on Friday October 23rd from 5pm onwards, everyone is welcome.  Santi is the Hindi word for peace – our 13 year old son, Vijay, came up with this harmonic name!
  • Last month, we entered our new 2012 Mayur Chardonnay & 2013 Raj Shiraz into the Australian Boutique Wine Awards (crush < than 250 tonnes) and both were awarded medals.  This is most pleasing to our 9 year old daughter, Rani, as her position is Chief Medal Sticker On-er!  Yes…it’s a paid job!
  • Woodsoak Wines turns 5 this year - hip hip hooray!  To celebrate, we have produced a limited release 2012 Sparkling Shiraz & 2013 Sparkling Blanc de Noirs.  Both are being bottle fermented in the traditional Champagne style & we have been patiently patiently patiently waiting and taste testing every few months for the past couple of years.  We are in the early stages of planning an event so stay tuned…
  • Woodsoak Wines are passionate about the “Shop Local” campaign.  We are a unique Community who rely on each other to keep Robe functioning.  There are only 3 local wine labels in the Robe Wine Region (Governor Robe, Karatta & ourselves) and we are all dedicated to collaboratively establishing Robe as a wine destination (with our Mt Benson neighbours).  We encourage you to support our local Stockists – The Bookshop, Sails Restaurant, Pizza Project, Caledonian Inn, Robe Hotel, Don’s Kitchen, Cellarbrations, Robe Bowling Club, Robe Golf Club, Robe Footy Club, Robe Harbour View Motel, Lakeview Motel & Robe Haven Motel.
Kind Regards
Will & Sonia Legoe
