Grape Variety: 100% Riesling
Winemaker: Nicholas Crampton & Aaron Wood
Region: Eden Valley
For a small winemaker, Woods Crampton has achieved a lot in a small amount of time. Part of the Barossa new wave, Woods Crampton make contemporary wines, balancing character, complexity and freshness, a world away from the fruit bombs of the past.
Vineyard: Sourced from three higher altitude and premium vineyards located at about 600 metres.
Winemaking: The fruit was hand harvested early in the morning into small bins before rapid transportation to the winery. Following a chill overnight at seven degrees overnight the fruit was whole bunch pressed. The fermentation was very cool, at around twelve degrees, and allowed to ferment to bone dry. The absence of the influence of solids is crucial to the purity of the style.
Vintage 2023: Eden Valley through late winter and spring was dry and particularly warm but the growing season turned cooler and had a few light, but lengthy rain events. The Riesling grape and resultant wines are loaded with flavour and retained natural acidity brilliantly for the classic Eden floral and racy style.
Tasting Note: Pale in colour with the faintest straw hue. The nose is very fresh with subtle floral notes overlaying classic lemon and lime flavours. The palate is elegant and pure, showing distinct regionality with a core of delicate citrus flavours and beautiful acidity. Pair with barbecued white fish.
