2013 Jack Estate Mythology Shiraz
Brilliant deep red with purple hues.
Enticing ripe plums, seasonal wild berries, with hints of cacao and anise.
An opulent and complex palate of plum, ripe cherry and dark chocolate. Well integrated oak notes and generous palate weight; complemented by persistent length and fine, chalky tannins.
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.
Slow cooked charred beef ribs, marinated in plum sauce with aromatic spices.
