Woods Crampton Eden Valley Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The grapes for this come from a sub-region called 'High Eden', which is one of the most magical sounding places on earth. Imagine fluffy bunnies, wild deer and endless fields of lush vineyards. In reality about the only thing right about that description is the fluffy bunnies! High Eden is actually a cool, rocky part of the Eden Valley that is known for its stony soil and tough Riesling vines. Tough Riesling vines that make beautifully pure wines like this one - crisp. tight and energetic, full of life and yet still juicy and long. Lovely stuff.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Pale, almost clear, with vivid green highlights. 

Nose: The nose is floral and perfumed with an array of citrus fruit, lilac and lavender.

Palate: The palate is at once intense and tightly-wound with outstanding purity. As with all great Riesling, the key is the long, fine acid line and vibrant finish.

Cellaring: A enjoyable and refreshing drink now but most definitely a long term cellaring proposition.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; from two vineyards well over 500m altitude, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, and only lightly pressed (500L per tonne, not 650 to 700L). A brilliantly precise portrayal of Eden Valley riesling, the flavours firmly held in a lemon spectrum, rather than lime, with bright acidity interwoven through the fruit. 250 dozen made.
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Hand-picked and whole bunch-pressed, with only 500 litres per tonne (normally up to 700 litres) extracted, and a mere 250 dozen made. Despite the gentle approach, is full of lime/lemon/lemongrass fruit that will develop a third dimension of lemon curd with five years in bottle. A truly lovely wine.
