About

About The Wine

The Woods Crampton Eden Valley Shiraz is the more elegant brother of their hugely popular Barossa Shiraz.

The 2016 vintage is a great representation of the power and richness that can be achieved in the Eden without the overblown fruit that you often find more in some other SA regions.

The fruit for this wine is hand selected from a single block in Eden Valley. It's a very good rendition of Shiraz that this vineyard produces.

Unfined and with minimum filtration, this really is vine to glass kind of stuff. The sub $30 price tag belies the seriousness and potential for this great Shiraz.

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 wines are full-flavoured but beautifully balanced.

And the value is always extremely high.

In Woods Crampton you see a modern approach to a historic region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Vineyard: Sourced from a single, low-yielding and dry grown Eden Valley vineyard located near Cranford not far from the Eden Valley township in southern Eden Valley.

Winemaking: Burgundian techniques and a hands-off philosophy. Hand-picked, an overnight chill and cold-soaked for 5 days at 7 degrees. Allowed to reach ambient temp. in 2 tonne fermenters. Very slow, temperature controlled ferment, twenty percent whole bunch and some wild with the cap held down and hand plunged twice daily. At two grams pressed in a very old, very gentle pneumatic press. Racked to new & old small format French oak (300 litre) and topped every 6 weeks, not racked or stirred for 18 months. The wine was not fined, given the loosest possible filtration and minimal sulphur before bottling.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"A very reliable wine, which for the last few vintages has been ‘Three Vineyards’, but is now happily single again. Or so I’d assume. Plenty of spice here, and a bit of perfume too, alongside boysenberry, sage and some toasty stuff. Medium bodied, firm but fair tannin offers a graphite grip on all that juicy purple fruit, acidity is clean and fine, and the finish is well-shaped and pretty long, with saltbush and sage tempering the bouncy berry fruit. Fun now, maybe very slightly more fun in a year or two, but hard to say." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked, fermented with 15% whole bunches and matured in old oak. Bright purple-red. Very primary, blackcurrant and bramble fruit, with a ribbon of spice and herbs woven through the succulent fruit tannins. Bright, fresh and long. Excellent value." - David Bicknell (Halliday Wine Companion)
