Woods Crampton Eden Valley Shiraz 2014

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 08-Mar-2016
Fruit from three sites, the ‘March’, ‘Batton’ and ‘Fechner’ vineyards, vines 40-70 y.o., hand-picked, given a cold soak and fermented partially with indigenous yeasts and 20% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in new and seasoned 300 L French oak. Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is soft and full with good depth of black berry, cherry and raspberry fruit aromas along with Asian spices, black pepper and nuances of liquorice, mint and eucalypt. Medium bodied, this has a finely concentrated core of black berries, cherries, raspberries, liquorice an black pepper., unfolding layers of spice, eucalypt and mint. The sweet and rich fruit is underlined by fine-grained structure providing depth and presence. The mouthfeel is balanced with fresh acidity and extract providing linear drive, carrying the wine to a long, lingering finish of liquorice and eucalyptus. This is a finely concentrated, sweet-fruited Shiraz with black fruits, pepper, liquorice and eucalypt notes. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 6 years. 365 cases made. Winemakers: Nicholas Crampton and Aaron Woods. 17.5+/20 Mar 2016 RRP AUS$30.00
