What began as a yearly diversion for label designer Aaron Woods and marketer Nicholas Crampton has grown into almost a full time obsession, with a range of wines from the Barossa and Eden Valley spanning five varieties and numerous styles. The ambition of Woods Crampton is to create unforced wines that showcase the quality of their fruit and tell the story of their vineyards. Minimal intervention winemaking follows to create elegant and expressive wines.

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. Only the finest free run, less than five hundred litres per tonne was used. 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. 

175 cases made. Black Label always puts me in mind of the top shelf stuff you’d eye off nervously as a kid…Clean and pure, lemon and lime squeezed into mineral water, a lavender perfume, ultra-fine crushed rock texture, and a cool and very long slaty finish. Very fine Eden Riesling. No coarseness. High class. Say no more.  Tasted: Sept 17; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $29; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2037; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
