2017 Woods Crampton Frances & Nicole Shiraz Eden Valley – For a small winemaker, Woods Crampton has achieved a lot in a small amount of time. “The straight men of the Barossa new wave” Woods Crampton make contemporary and balanced wines, a world away from the fruit bombs of the past.
Sourced from the Blenkiron Vineyard, a truly pedigreed, low-yielding, sixty year old vineyard on its own rootstocks within the Eden Valley. Hand picked at less than two tonnes per acre.
Rich, dark and brooding – riper than 2014 but still displaying a “cool climate” profile and whole bunch aromatics. The palate is beautifully balanced and effortless with a core of powerful blue berried fruit / ripe plums and exotic spice. The class of the wine is evident in the wine impressive length and finesse flowing to a bright and precisely detailed finish defined by fine silky tannins.
This wine will unveil its true character over the next twenty years if carefully cellared.
