Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
Good winter rains ensured that soil profiles were well filled before the growing season. Cool spring temperatures
experienced in premium grape growing regions promoted healthy vine growth with desirable bunch numbers. Warm
and dry summer conditions provided ideal conditions for optimum colour and flavour development, while efficient
ripening was encouraged by warm autumn temperatures. Reduced yields, low disease risk and desirable weather
conditions ensured that premium Shiraz parcels showed the richness of colour and intensity of varietal flavour required for the Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz.
