    The nose is deep and inviting, offering a glimpse of the classic violet / perfumed lift of cooler climate Shiraz. The palate is supple and beautifully fruited, more medium bodied than recent vintages with dark berry, boysenberry and spice matched to silky tannins and very subtle oak before a long and bright finish. Somewhat Coltish now, this wine is showing glimpses of it potential and has a drinking window of two to fifteen years.

    Producer

    For a small winemaker, Woods Crampton has been able to achieve a lot in a small amount of time. “The straight men of the Barossa new wave” Woods Crampton makes contemporary and balanced wines, a world away from the jammy fruit bombs of the past. These are balanced, wonderfully flavoursome and well made wines of superb value.

    The range includes a ladder of old vine Barossa Shiraz, complex and thought provoking blends and alternate varietals that may be the future of the valley.

    Region

    The Eden Valley makes up the remaining half of the Barossa region, lying at a higher altitude than the valley floor with leaner, bonier soils and vineyards to 650 metres. Compared to the Barossa Valley, the vineyards are spread out sparsely in the Eden Valley, dotted amongst ancient gums, quartz outcrops and river courses and it is home to some incredibly old vines, most notably Henschke’s Hill of Grace vineyard, planted in 1860. The Shiraz up here is finer than the valley floor; more elegant, less horsepower and has an impressive track-record of cellar worthiness. Riesling too excels, with the Yalumba’s Pewsey Vale and Contours vineyards in the High Eden leading the way. Again diversity rules and in Flaxman Valley you’ll find the concentrated, full-throttle wines of Chris Ringland virtually next door to the beautiful natural wines from Tom Shobbrook and Abel Gibson of Ruggabellus. That’s why we love it. Local Knowledge: Take a drive out to peer at the ancient ancestor vines at Hill of Grace and then check out the wonderful Casa Carboni wine bar in Angaston.
