About The Wine

Woods Crampton - once again challenging Barossa Valley convention with this smashable and completely unique red.

Their 'Sleeping Dogs' is an eclectic blend of Bonvedro, Mataro, and Graciano, which is built for easy drinking with a point of difference. The fruit is picked and vinified separately, aged briefly in only older French oak with around 20% whole bunches adding extra depth and interest.

There is nothing else like this in the Barossa - a dangerously drinkable red full of spice and bright fruit. Very interesting and very, very tasty. Top value for the more adventurous Barossa fan.

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.

The Wine Front

"Exotic spice, salt beef, dried cherries and strawberries, sage and earth. Medium bodied, smooth plush tannin, a saline and spicy edge, plush red and black fruit, that sage stuffing flavour coming through, and plush velour-like tannin on a good finish. Good stuff." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sourced from three vineyards – Mataro from the 80 year-old Marschall Vineyard in Vine Vale, Bonvedro from the 70 year-old John’s Vineyard in Light Pass and the Graciano from the 9 year old Cowham Vineyard in Light Pass. The 2015 vintage on the eastern slopes of the Barossa Valley was outstanding.

Good soil moisture allowed the vines to weather the warm, dry summer before late rains refreshed the vines before cooler conditions allowed a long, even ripening. Each variety is vinified separately as part of the single varietal releases. Typically cold soaked before cool fermentation in small one and two tonne open fermenters with hand plunging and 15-25% whole bunch inclusion. Matured in medium and large seasoned oak before blending and bottling with fining.

Blend : Bonvedro (40%), Mataro (40%), Graciano (20%)
