Woods-Crampton 2018 Sleeping Dogs Red Blend

The current releases from Aaron Woods and Nick Crampton, using the skills of the Sons of Eden winemaking team, are right in the zone. I could just as easily have recommended the Shiraz or the Pedro GSM, but this unusual blend of bonvedro, mataro and graciano grapes just got the verdict in the photo finish. There is a delightful combination of bright Australian fruit and Spanish savoury notes to be found here. Oak influence in minimal, 15% of the fruit is whole bunch, and the end result is damn good booze perfect for quaffing after work. Recommended. $24.
