Classic varietal Tempranillo characters of black cherry and savoury spice
Medium bodied, with savoury fruit flavours and softly textured tannins.
Enjoy with tapas such as lamb meatballs, marinated octopus or olives.
Parcels of fruit were destemmed and crushed into static and rotary fermentation vessels and fermented on skins for around seven to ten days, at temperatures between 18 and 26°C. Cap management techniques were optimised for each individual parcel, to maximise the extraction of desirable colour and flavour components while maintaining soft tannin structures typical of the Jacob’s Creek style. On pressing off of skins, the free-run and the pressings components were blended together to give greater tannin structure and balance to the wine. The various components were matured separately before allocation into the final blend.
