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.

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%)
ABV : 14.00%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2020
Bottle Size : 750ml

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)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.
