For a small winemaker, Woods Crampton has been able to achieve a lot in a small amount of time. "The straight men of the Barossa new wave" Woods Crampton makes contemporary and balanced wines, a world away from the jammy fruit bombs of the past.


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"2016 was an outstanding vintage, possibly the best in the Barossa Valley in a decade – despite a number of hot contenders. Excellent, balanced and consistent conditions – warm but not too warm, dry but not too dry, crucially cool Autumn nights – have led to intensely flavoured and brilliantly balanced fruit with excellent freshness. 

The nose is very ripe and lifted with primary fruit aromas of dark berries, ripe blood plans and exotic spice with only the lightest hints of oak. The palate is bold and effortless with a depth of spicy, dark berry fruit flavours wrapped in fine tannins before a finish given definition by whole-bunch derived grip and fresh acidity. This wine drinks well now but will improve significantly with twelve months in bottle before aging gracefully for well over ten years."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"This delectably expressed shiraz is filled with black/blueberry, cherry compote, vanilla and toasted hazelnut characters with hints of cake spice and black olive. The palate is concentrated and richly fruited, and displays excellent mid palate weight and velvety texture, wonderfully framed by silky tannins. The wine is opulent and sumptuous, and finishes persistent and delicious. At its best: now to 2024."


93/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, May 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"It’s a little cloudy, but has great colour. Spice, boysenberry, almost a gin botanicals perfume too, brown bread and chocolate wrappers. Medium bodied, fresh and perky, bright crushed berry flavour and spice, beautiful lightly furry tannin, settled acidity, and an aromatic and commanding finish of fine length. This has drinkability, value and complexity all sewn up. Strong recommendation."


93/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Cold soaked at 8 degrees for 5 days in small 2-tonne open fermenters, hand-plunged, matured for 9 months in oak of various sizes (30% new). Has very good attack to its lively mouthfeel, with black fruits, licorice and pepper darting in every direction. It's very catchy and juicy and savoury. Drink to: 2031."
