2018 Woods Crampton Michael John Shiraz Barossa Valley – “My father created a thriving business from scratch, overcoming many challenges to achieve so much, all whilst never changing who he was or forgetting where he came from. There is much similar in this one hundred and twenty year old vineyard, having slowly grown to greatness whilst still clearly expressing its roots. I like to think there is a long and bright future ahead for both of them. This one’s for you, dad.” – Aaron Woods.
Sourced from a vineyard planted in eighteen ninety four in the Marananga sub-region, dry grown and planted on its own rootstocks. Hand picked at less than one and a half tonnes per acre.
A dark brooding beast of almost impenetrable colour and tightly wound aromatics, displaying notes of dark berries, blackcurrants and spice. The palate is mouth coating and unctuous with massively powerful and deep fruit flowing across the tongue. Most impressively and crucially the fruit retains freshness and balance – the true Elephant on Roller Skates. Despite the opulence and weight the tannins are fine and the finish framed by fine tannins. Big Barossa done the Woods Crampton way.
This wine will develop and gain character for many years to come. Pair with a Tomahawk steak.
