Woods Crampton Old John Vegan Friendly Shiraz 2016
Woods Crampton make contemporary and balanced wines a world away from the jammy fruit bombs of the past. This Woods Crampton "Old John" Shiraz Bonvedro combines Shiraz from 55 year old vineyards with Bonvedro from 75 year old vineyards in the Barossa to create a complex and thought provoking wine.
Flavours of dark berries, licorice and blood plums evolve to exotic spice and hints of wild herb on an expansive back palate courtesy of the Bonvedro. The finish is impressively detailed and defined by stalky whole bunch complexity and a fresh finish.
Bottled without fining and minimal filtration.
