Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz 2016

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 09-Oct-2017
Full, even, dark, deep, near saturated black-red colour with purple hues. This has a softly full nose with good depth, showing rich, ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit with plum notes and complexing dark herb nuances at the core. Full bodied, the palate has a deeply packed heart with blackberry fruit with soft raspberry and boysenberry notes, melded with complexing dark herbs. The palate has fine, grainy structure supporting the fruit with integrated acidity. The palate has good drive and linearity, and carries to a firmly concentrated, lingering finish of black fruits and dark herbs. This is a full, deeply packed Shiraz with ripe blackberry fruit with raspberry, boysenberry flavours and complexing dark herbal notes on a fine, but firm-textured finish. Serve with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 4-6 years. A blend of 92% Shiraz,. 4% Mataro and 2% each of Bonvedro and Graciano. 60$ from the Barossa Valley and 40% from the Eden Valley, hand-picked and fermented with 10% whole bunches to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in primarily French with some American oak, the 30% new oak being French. Winemakers: Nicholas Crampton and Aaron Woods. 17.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $27.00
