Woods Crampton Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 04-Jun-2014
Full, saturated black-red colour with youthful purple hues on rim. The nose is softly full and expansive with up-front aromas of ripe black fruits, black plums and liquorice, unfolding spice and oak cedar elements in the glass. Medium-full bodied, softly integrated and harmoniously presented flavours of ripe black berry and plum fruits feature on the palate. The fruit is moderately rich and subtly sweet, with notes of liquorice, black pepper and spices adding detail. Rounded in the mouth, the palate has soft, drying tannins balancing the fruit, carrying the wine to a textural finish with spicy plum, earth and chocolate notes. This is a softly integrated Shiraz with spicy plum flavours and a fine, dry mouthfeel. Serve with barbecued and grilled red meat dishes over the next 4-5 years. 95% Shiraz and 5% Mataro, fruit from old vines, 85% Barossa Valley and 15% Eden Valley, the latter from the ‘Felker’ and ‘Batton’ vineyards, given a cold soak and cool-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 30% new oak, primarily French, in small and large format. 17.5/20 Jun 2014 RRP $25.99
