Winemaker Notes

To craft Double Barrel Shiraz, Jacob's Creek started with rich ripe fruit from selected Barossa vineyards. First the Shiraz was matured in traditional oak barrels before being finished in aged Scotch Whisky barrels. This unique double-barrel technique adds smoothness and richness to the palate.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 93
Australian Wine Companion
The bouquet is particularly fragrant, with plum, all spice and licorice aromas; the palate is no more than light- to medium-bodied, but does have very good mouthfeel and persistence; indeed, it seems to have done away with the need for tannin support, and the oak impact is minimal. Ready to roll right now.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
Lush and meaty with spicy blackberry and ripe red fruits; smooth and balanced, aged in Scotch whiskey barrels; fresh and juicy, bright and deep; ripe and fresh.

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.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry-farmed and bush-trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

In the Glass

Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

Perfect Pairings

Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
