This medium-bodied rosé combines two classic grape varieties with a Mediterranean third. Shiraz offer soft ripe plum fruit while Grenache offers juicy raspberry and spice flavours. Sangiovese adds silky smoothness and savoury subtlety to the blend.

Pale magenta; fragrant red fruit aromas, then an almost slippery palate; while dry, red fruits rise on the back-palate and finish. A complete rose with character and attitude. Gold medal Sydney Wine Show '10. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australain Wine Companion Edition 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant fuchsia pink.
Attractive raspberry and red cherry aromas with subtle notes of blackcurrant and confectionary spice.
The palate displays intense fresh raspberry and cherry flavours up front with a fleshy mid palate. A textural savouriness as a result of the Sangiovese component balances out the fruit and provides structure and length.
Serve chilled. Great with roast pork loin with rosemary and salt-roasted potatoes served with pan juices.
The wine is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, and Sangiovese with each varietal playing an integral part in the character of the finished wine. Early in the season winemakers and viticulturists worked together to identify the vineyards which best captured the fruit profile that they were hoping to achieve in the finished wine.
Fruit was cool night harvested and delivered to the winery where it was crushed and pressed off skins immediately. Selected parcels of fruit were given extended skin contact time to extract more depth of colour, however without the extraction of phenolics and harsh tannins. After clarification parcels of juice were cool fermented with a selected yeast strain at 12 – 15°C to enhance their natural varietal fruit characters. Following fermentation the wines were assessed by our winemaking team with only the most appropriate parcels selected in the final blend. Post blending, the wine was stabilised, clarified and bottled under anaerobic conditions in order to capture the fresh varietal aromas and flavours in the bottle.
The Jacob's Creek Three Vines Shiraz Grenache Sangiovese captures the varietal characteristics of each component resulting in a very lively and fresh style with complex varietal characters making it an attractive food friendly wine.
