Woods Crampton Phillip Patrick Shiraz 2016
26th February 2019
"Heavy bottle, wax sealed, cork sealed. Eden Valley shiraz, single vineyard. French oak, 500litre puncheons, 70% new. 1200 bottles made...
More than a little fancy. Fresh and floral with boysenberry and redcurrant flavours pouring it on. It’s not gloopy or heavy but it’s a powerhouse. Spice, streaks of herbs, twiggy-but-fine tannin, a general nuttiness/smokiness. Monumental in a good way. Will go the distance."
Rated: 95 Points
