Jack’s Shiraz 2019

Estate Grown |Family Owned | Open Top Fermented | Basket Pressed

2019 Jack’s Shiraz was sourced from the family’s Greenock, Marananga & Moppa Hill vineyards.  64% Greenock fruit with a good percentage from Mums Block this year, which is planted on red-brown earth over deep red clay.  24% from the calcareous soils with fragmented shale from Marananga.  12% Moppa Block 8 which is sandy soil over orange-red clay with thick gravely quartz stone scattered throughout soil profile.

The grapes were de-stemmed and whole berries transferred into open top fermenters.  70% was made in small 3 tonne open tops with hand plunging twice times per day.  30% made in larger fermenters 5 & 8 tonne, with 2 x pump overs per day.  Both receiving an occasional rack and return to chillers for cooling only.  After fermentation the wine was then drained to oak barrels and skins were hand dug out of the fermenters into the basket press.

Show Tasting Notes

Appearance:  Vibrant crimson to purple hue, magenta to dark core.

Aroma:  Black fruits: plum, cherry & mulberry almost take a back seat to the array of spices. Black pepper, all spice, cloves and star anise. Equally earthy beetroot, cola and black olives strive for centre stage.

Palate:  Medium bodied, soft silky mid palate with structural grainy tannins on the finish.  The drying tannins are a reflection of the very low yielding, dry, warm vintage. Still loads of rich generous flavour Jack’s is known for and long lingering finish.

All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
