2012 Jack Estate Mythology Shiraz
Intense dark red.
Enticing ripe plums, seasonal wild raspberries, with hints of cacao and liquorice.
An opulent and complex palate of plum, ripe cherry and dark chocolate. The seamless oak integration and generous palate weight is complemented by persistent length and fine, chalky tannins.
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.
Savour this wine with a traditional favourite like Osso Bucco.
