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)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
