My Wine Guy
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.
This Riesling, fresh off the back of the almost very recent 2018 vintage, is stellar. Drenched with floral notes, 2018 is going to be known as superbly approachable vintage, with a good mix of citrus driven tannins, nettle and green apple. Exemplary as always from the Woods Crampton crew (when and what makes a winery become a 'crew' I wonder?).
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.
Winter rains and a mild, warm but bright summer are the hallmarks of a very good year for Eden Valley and particularly the Riesling. The flavours are ripe and pretty and the high natural acids remained crisp and fresh. Overall a fine year for Riesling.
Pale, almost clear, with vivid green highlights. The nose is very fresh and restrained, tending towards citrus with subtle floral notes. The palate is elegant and pure, offering glimpses of its potential, with a core of delicate citrus flavours and beautiful mineral acidity.
