Winemaker's Notes:

Deep crimson red in color with concentrated and lifted cassis and black fruits of the forest on the nose, accompanied by subtle notes of mint, chocolate and attractive toasty oak.

A well-balanced wine, exhibiting vibrant and intense varietal blackcurrant fruit flavours layered over tight, supple tannins and well-integrated oak, leading to a long persistent finish. While approachable in its youth, with careful cellaring this wine will continue to develop further complexity as it ages.

An ideal accompaniment to roast beef or lamb and mature cheeses. A wine that will deliver further with cellaring.

About Jacob's Creek:

With over 150 years of making wine in the Barossa Valley, Jacob's Creek's winemaking philosophy is to make high quality wines in a contemporary Australian style, which are fresh, elegant, great tasting and show true varietal character. From its beginnings in 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant named Johann Gramp planted the Barossa Valley's first commercial vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek. His first vineyard was in a small ironstone winery and visitors can still walk the historic vineyard, inspect the original cellar and feel a true sense of place for Jacob's Creek. Today, Jacob's Creek is one of the leading forces of Australian wine, creating wines with true character with a variety of different offerings from its portfolio.
