Woods Crampton Michael John Shiraz 2018
10th August 2020
"From a vineyard planted in 1894, located in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley, or at least the 2016 vintage was. 50% new 300L French oak. 2125 bottles produced.
Rich and full of black fruit, liquorice, coffee cream and spice oak. Full-bodied, no prisoners style of Shiraz, with lashings of sweet dark fruit and oak, sticky and grainy tannin, Old Jamaica chocolate, and a bold finish of excellent length, albeit slightly splintery with oak. A whole heap of everything. No doubt many will love this for its heft and ribald flavour."
