About The Wine

Woods Crampton's 'Pedro' blend has undergone a bit of a facelift in recent years - now a GSM, and also now 100% preservative free.

The lighter side of the Woods Crampton range, this is an unoaked, 'Joven' inspired rendition of the classic Rhone blend, meant for drinking in its youth and by the bucketload.

It falls nicely into the 'natural' camp without being at all quirky or confronting - it's just a delicious, pure, easy-to-love drink, and unbeatable value as always.

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

Winemaking: Chilled overnight before a cold soak for five days at eight degrees. Fermented in small open fermenters with twenty percent whole bunch. The fruit was allowed to rise to natural temperature and begin wild fermentation without any additions or sulphur. Pressed to tank and matured without the influence of oak. Bottled without fining, ultra loose filtration and no sulphur addition. Less than 8ppm FS02 post bottling so technically a Preservative Free Wine.

2020 Vintage: It will be remembered for high quality across the Barossa in 2020 but yields were down. This was in part due to temperamental spring weather and a hot, dry summer. Although the yields were affected by the heatwave of December and January, prudent growers managed this well with careful irrigation and maintaining soil moisture. The resulting fruit, (though less of it) was concentrated and exceptional.

Tasting Note: Pedro was inspired by the light and bright “lunchtime” wines found in bistro’s throughout the Rhone Valley. Surprisingly dark in colour with the wild expression only no sulphur wines can give – all red fruits, lifted forest undergrowth and exotic spice. The palate is again surprisingly rich and full with vibrant naturally sweet flavours exploding in the mouth before being reigned in by whole bunch grip and fresh acidity. Drinking brilliantly now or for the next couple of years.

Blend : Grenache (45%), Shiraz (30%), Mataro (25%)
ABV : 14%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml

Beautiful

First W&C wine I have tasted. If this is their cheap n' cheerful GSM, then I can't wait to try their award-winning heavier flagships!

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. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
