Inky dark, great depth of flavour, with excellent oak integration. Solid, smooth tannin, will age for 8 - 10 years.
Jakkalsfontein is situated around a spring where to this day, the eerie evening calls of black-backed jackals can be heard. Old unirrigated bush vines produce bunches of Shiraz grapes with small berries. Jakkalsfontein is a firm wine with concentrated berry, spice and meaty flavours and a long finish.
"This atypical wine has aromas of licorice, hickory, dark red fruit, paprika and other dried spices. The tannins are firm, the mouthfeel is smooth and balanced, and the luscious fruit is laden with spice, harmonious oak and crushed rock flavors. An individual wine of unquestionable quality. Drink now–2014." -Wine Enthusiast
