Woods Crampton Mengler’s Shiraz 2018

SKU
WCSH201814 UCAU
This is a blend of a single Barossa Valley vineyard and a single Eden Valley vineyard on either side of Mengler Hill. The Eden Valley portion is a low-yielding and dry grown vineyard located near Cranford not far from the Eden Valley township in southern Eden Valley. The wine was not fined, given the loosest possible filtration and minimal sulphur before bottling. Mengler’s Shiraz is a rich but balanced style that shows off the best of the Barossa and Eden Valley, you could sum it up by saying power and poise. More in the medium bodied mould, the palate is supple and elegantly fruited, with dark berry, and seductive Eden Valley spice complemented by silky tannins, subtle oak before a long and bright finish. Drinking well now this has an assured and long life ahead of it so will cellar comfortably for the next five years. Drink with a chargrilled steak or a selection of hard cheeses with lavash.

    "A selection across two vineyards on either side of Mengler Hill, pruned to abstemious yields, hand-picked and plunged resplendent with 15% whole-bunch, before maturation in French oak (25% new) for 12 months. The result is a more intense expression than its brethren, boasting a vinous drive of mocha, coffee bean and bitter chocolate melded with the assorted dark berry fruits, across the palate. Long and sumptuous. Compelling length. I prefer the juiciness of the regular Barossa wine, but this wins based on its intrinsic qualitative makeup: tenacity and intensity of flavour."

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

South Australia

If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.

Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!

Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.
