2017 Jack Estate Shiraz
Deep ruby red with flecks of purple.
Red berries and mulberries with hints of cloves, richly aromatic curry spices, and a hint of stew plum.
A medium bodied wine with dark berries meld with raspberry, fruitcake and a hint of vanilla. The wines rich fruit and spice is balanced with subtle oak, and velvety tannins, which combine to deliver an intense, yet elegant 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.
Only the finest parcels of fruit were selected from premium Coonawarra and Wrattonbully vineyards, enabling our winemaker to craft a wine that re-flects this perfect synergistic combination of these premium cool-climate regions.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 5 to 7 years.
Enjoy with a crown rib roast of beef, garlic and herb infused carrots and spring vegetables roasted with copious volumes of your best local olive oil.
