Woods Crampton White Label Barossa Shiraz 2017

Sourced from “a number of established low-yielding vineyards primarily at higher altitudes and none on the Barossa floor.” Also incorporates a 15% Eden Valley component which shines within the final blend. It’s hard to miss. Juicy stylings with minimal oak interference. The website lists the specifics; large format 480 litre old French. So refreshing both literally and metaphorically. 10% whole bunch which is more detectable in the attractive perfume than in a stalky palate sense.

Vivid red in colour with an expressive nose of dark berries and exotic spice with only a hint of French oak. The palate is beautifully layered and textured with a core of supple red-berried fruit (that would suggest a cooler climate) overlaid with a dusting of spice and fine-grained tannins. Most importantly I think it is a wonderful drink – approachable and versatile with just the right balance of hedonistic pleasure and intellectual reward. I am drinking it regularly now but I think it will gain character and complexity over the next decade at least.

Opulently perfumed with aromas of ripe blood plums, black  brambly fruit and exotic spice. A burst of vibrant, supple, slippery dark berry fruit flavours with a dusting of spice is wrapped in fine tannins before an attractive floral lift on the impressively long finish.

The wine is superbly fruited and lifted on the nose showing blackberry, dark plum, vanilla, roasted beet and dark chocolate aromas, followed by a plush palate that is supple and velvety. It is sumptuous and generous with loads of gorgeous flavours, backed by fine tannins, leading to a persistent delicious finish. 95 points Sam Kim
