About The Wine

Yet again the Woods Crampton Barossa Valley Shiraz shapes as one of the year's true wine bargains. Shiraz lovers eat your hearts out.

The style of this wine is best summed up by the Woods Crampton boys themselves: "A modern, fruit driven Barossa Shiraz with a focus on drinkability. A world away from the over-extracted and over the top styles loved by the Americans. Cool Climate Barossa Shiraz?"

If you're a fan of this quintessential Aussie wine style, this is quite simply one of the best value Shiraz in The Barossa Valley.

 

About Woods Crampton

Woods Crampton is an energetic brand quickly making a big name for themselves out of the Barossa Valley.

Essentially a two man operation, their range is a mix of traditional Barossa and some obscure Mediterranean varieties.

The value is always extremely high in these wines.

A modern approach to a historic region.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Barossa Valley Shiraz - big bold and beautiful. A cavalcade of plum, blackberry and saltbush, sweet cocoa tannins and a dusting of black pepper. A lift in perfume too, some purple flowers and blueberry (a touch of Eden Valley Shiraz?), but open for business and ready to rip. This is spot on. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Such good value, as ever. Blackberry, spice, something like demerara sugar, dried herb. Medium-bodied, juicy blackcurrant/blackberry, light grainy tannin, saucy spicy flavours, sweetness of fruit with dry tannin mopping up the finish. Crowd-pleasing with a bit of sophistication thrown in." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Winemaking:

Sourced from a number of low yielding old-vine vineyards on the cooler eastern valley slopes, towards Eden Valley. Chilled overnight before primarily de-stemming and cold soak for five days at eight degrees. Fermentation was a cool twenty five degrees in small open two tonne fermenters with fifteen percent whole bunch and twice daily hand plunging. Matured in small and large format oak barrels, primarily French with some American. The thirty percent new oak component is all French oak. Bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
