2014 Jack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense red with bright purple hues.
Ripe blackberry, blackcurrant and subtle mint combined with a touch of spice.
Full bodied wine abundant in black fruits, mocha and velvety, dusty tannins. These rich flavours are complemented by 18 months maturation in French oak hogs-heads, ensuring a refined and poised finish.
An excellent spring combined with a great berry set provided a vintage with balanced yields and high quality fruit. The warm summer months followed by a beautiful long ‘Indian summer’ allowed the grapes to be harvested at optimal flavour and maturity.
Sourced from three dedicated and local family’s vineyards across Coonawarra, each block of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was carefully assessed for optimal ripeness, flavour and tannin development.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 10-15 years.
Enjoy this wine with beautifully cooked scotch fillet, buttered seasonal vege-tables, and served on a bed well seasoned celeriac puree.
