Winemaker's Notes:

Full depth crimson red. A lifted nose with ripe, concentrated blackberry and fruitcake aromas, hints of chocolate, black pepper and spice, seasoned with a sprinkling of nicely integrated sweet vanillin oak. Full-bodied yet soft, the palate shows ripe black fruits layered subtly with carefully handled stylish oak, supported by silky textured fruit tannins and balanced acidity, concluding with a long, savory finish.

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.
