Woods Crampton Five Horses GSM 2021


A cracking example of the traditional Southern Rhône blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, ten puncheons yielding 611 cases. The wine was made with 20% whole bunches, hand plunged. Maroon purple in colour, the nose gives us aromas of soy, spices, aniseed, dark berries, chocolate and liqueur choc/cherry. There is also an appealing note of a brine/iodine but with none of the metallic touch that often accompanies it. A soft and supple palate, there are abundant tannins, but they are most gentle in nature. A hint of almond bitterness ties everything together on a lengthy finish. Enjoy over the next six to eight years. Love it
