2019 Jack Estate Shiraz
Deep ruby red with a bright red hue.
Ripe red berries and mulberries with violet florals, black pepper and sweet American and Hungarian oak flavours.
A medium bodied wine with dark berries meld with raspberry, cloves and a hint of vanilla. The wines rich fruit and spice is balanced with subtle oak, and chalky 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 reflects this perfect synergistic combination of these premium cool-climate regions.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 5 to 15 years.
Enjoy with any BBQ, especially spareribs, grilled meats and vegetables. Also pairs well with cheese, especially aged hard cheeses like Gouda.
