For this wine we reserved selected parcels of grapes grown in the Barossa region in South Australia. Here the warm days and cool nights allow for optimal development of intense flavour and complexity.
Jacob’s Creek Reserve Shiraz exhibits complex flavours of mulberry, plum, chocolate and spice with excellent fruit length.

Winery Tasting 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, savoury finish.
Excellent drinking now, and will continue to improve over the next five to ten years.
An ideal accompaniment to braised lamb shanks, eye-fillet of beef or hard cheeses.
