2012 Jack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Dense dark red with vivid violet.
Black forest berries, cacao and blackcurrant with hints of spice.
Generous and full bodied wine which is rich in dark berry fruits. The smooth, velvety tannins are complimented by balanced French oak which leads to a long and harmonious finish.
Excellent winter and spring rainfall with even summer temperatures, resulting in a near perfect growing season for Vintage 2012. These conditions, combined with cool autumn night temperatures and lower than average yields, allowed all varieties to achieve full fruit maturity with ease.
Each block of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was carefully assessed for optimal ripeness, flavour and tannin development. Indicators of vineyard individuality were scrupulously investigated to ensure each premium parcel of fruit was displaying its own unique expression of the amazing Coonawarra terroir.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 10-15 years.
Enjoy this wine with charred rib eye and peppered wild mushrooms on a bed of polenta laden with parmesan
