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.
Sourced from a single, low yielding twenty five year old vineyard in the Angaston Foothills, right on the boundary road between Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Sheltered by the Angaston hills, the vines are cooled in the afternoons because of shadows from hills and cool evenings as tucked into a gulley, perfect for slow ripening Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark fruited aromas with fresh new leather, dark clove and black olive tapenade in support. The palate is dark, rich and layered with sweet black fruit flavours, garden herbs, rose petal and toast. Soft but obvious tannins combined with freshness of acidity help drive a satisfyingly long finish.
