Woods Crampton Black Label Shiraz 2016
21st June 2018
"A very reliable wine, which for the last few vintages has been ‘Three Vineyards’, but is now happily single again. Or so I’d assume.
Plenty of spice here, and a bit of perfume too, alongside boysenberry, sage and some toasty stuff. Medium bodied, firm but fair tannin offers a graphite grip on all that juicy purple fruit, acidity is clean and fine, and the finish is well-shaped and pretty long, with saltbush and sage tempering the bouncy berry fruit. Fun now, maybe very slightly more fun in a year or two, but hard to say."
Rated: 93 Points
