2017 Jack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense crimson red with bright blue hues.
Ripe blackberry, cigar box, tomato leaf and subtle mint combined with a touch of spice and old English garden herbs.
A sturdy medium to full bodied wine with plums, mocha and velvety, dusty tannins. Perfectly balanced fine grain French oak, integrated with the fruit, 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 allowed the grapes to be harvested at optimal flavour and maturity.
Sourced from three dedicated and local families vineyard across Coonawarra and Wrattonbully, 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 5 to 15 years.
Enjoy this wine with a smoked whole loin of lamb, concentrated jus, and slow roasted parsnip, pumpkin, and sweet potato salad.
