Woods Crampton Frances & Nicole Shiraz 2016
21st June 2018
"Tasted alongside the 2016 Eden Valley Shiraz so I could find out what an extra $30 or $40 gets you.
Rich, perfumed, chocolaty Shiraz with layers of concentrated mixed berry flavour, along with some spicy and creamy vanilla oak, though I hasten to add that it’s not a ‘blockbuster’, as such, tending towards the finer side of such things. Tannin is plush but makes a firm play, and the vanilla cream and berries are offset by some more savoury elements. Finish is free-flowing and impressive. In the immortal words of Young Mr Grace – “You’ve all done very well!”"
Rated: 95 Points
