Winemaker's Notes:

Deep crimson with dark red hues. Lifted aromas of mulberry and blackberry with underlying hints of cloves and anise, balanced by spicy oak notes. Full bodied wine displaying rich fruit flavours of dark berries and plums and velvety tannins. Lovely acid balance and integration of flavours result in a supple and engaging wine with a lingering finish of spice, chocolate and mocha.

A true expression of Australian Shiraz, to be enjoyed now, but with careful cellaring will develop gracefully over the next ten years.

Serving suggestion: An ideal accompaniment to braised lamb shanks, eye-fillet of beef or hard cheeses.

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.
