2012 Jack Estate Mythology Cabernet Sauvignon
Brilliant deep crimson red with purple hues.
Beautifully ripe blackberries, fresh dark summer berries and just a hint of fresh mint and cacao.
Dark fruits mingle with vivid flavours of raspberries and plums, dark chocolate and coffee beans. Intensely full bodied with silky tannins, complemented by well-balanced French oak and a long structured finish.
Excellent winter and spring rainfall with even summer temperatures resulted in a near perfect growing season for Vintage 2012.
The selected parcels of ultra-premium fruit were fermented individually in 4.5t open fermenters. The wines were pressed off to barrel to complete primary alcoholic and malolactic fermentation and then initially matured separately for 12 months. Primary blending and a further 14 months of maturation have allowed the individual components to harmonise into a balanced yet powerful wine.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 15 years.
Enjoy with a mustard and herb beef wellington and a rich red wine jus.
