Winemaker's Notes:

Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz 2009 is full, in depth, and bright crimson in hue. Richly perfumed and aromatic, with intense dark berry fruits, hints of black pepper spice and sweet vanillin oak. A rich core of ripe black fruits, layered subtly with black pepper and restrained, stylish oak, supported by softly textured fruit tannins and concluding with a long, savory finish.

Excellent drinking now and will continue to improve over the next five to ten years. 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.
