Woods Crampton Black Label Graciano 2015 (Barossa Valley, South Australia) "...spicy, red fruits, savoury..."
"Includes 5% tempranillo, 50% whole bunches, wild yeast open-fermented, 20 days on skins, hand-plunged daily, pressed to two used French puncheons, matured for 15 months. Graciano can be a miserable handful, and I wondered how the whole bunch stem characters would play with it, but it has worked, with spicy, savoury stemmy notes dancing on the tongue, red fruits in the lead. Woods Crampton has got the game tied up when it comes to value for money linked with varieties and old vines of great worth." 95 Points - James Halliday, The Wine Companion
