Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 08-Jun-2016
Full, dark, near impenetrable black-hued red colour with some purple on the rim. This has a softly concentrated nose with good depth and a core of vibrantly ripe black-berried fruits entwined by aromatic dark herbs, nuances of whole bunch talk perfume, along with dark plum and liquorice elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is finely concentrated with rich and ripe flavours of blackberries, liquorice and black florals forming a soft, deep core. Liquorice, herbs and spicy oak add interest and detail. The fruit is fresh and the palate flows with vitality, underlined by fine-grained, supple tannins providing structure and moderate grip. Soft acidity enhances the richness. The flavours of plums, liquorice and black pepper carry to a long, fine-textured finish. This is a softly rich and concentrated Shiraz with sweetly ripe black fruits with aromatic lift, fine grained tannins and a fresh mouthfeel. Math with barbecued and roasted red meat dishes over the next 5 years. A blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Mataro, 85% from the Barossa Valley and 15% from the Eden Valley, fermented with 15% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in small and large format oak, primarily French with some American, the 30% new oak all French. 18.0-/20 Jun 2016 RRP $26.00
