2013 Jack Estate Mythology Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense crimson red.
Beautifully ripe blackberries, fresh dark summer berries and just a hint of fresh mint and tobacco leaf.
Dense dark fruits with brilliantly aromatic flavours of raspberries and plums, dark chocolate and vanilla bean. Intensely full bodied with silky tannins, complemented by well-balanced French oak and a wonderfully long struc-tured finish.
The warm dry summer followed by a wonderfully cool autumn allowed for beautifully formed bunches to be picked with optimal flavour and ripeness.
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 initially matured sepa-rately for 18 months. Primary blending and a further 22 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.
Wood fired goat shoulder marinated in Baharat (Lebanese seven spice), garlic, and preserved lemon.
