Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is deep garnet red with hues of cherry and crimson with brick red showing on the rim hinting at five years gentle maturation.

Aroma

The bouquet is filled with the intensity of Cabernet. Herbaceous, vegetative characters up front with medicinal herbs lifted by hints of black currant and sweet red berries. The background carries mint, violets and ground coffee.

Palate

The initial flavours of plum and strawberry fruits are quickly overshadowed by the savoury herbaceous flavours of capsicum, mint and green olives. The mid palate is long and full with pencil shaving oak and a creamy cashew nut texture. With small barrel maturation and extended time in cellar it has developed a dry spicy finish with seductive hints of chocolate and licorice. The tannin structure is firm and perfectly balanced by the mellowing smoothness of Merlot.

Food Matching

This wine is lovely drinking right now. It makes a great match to juicy steak or beef and is delicious with tasty vintage cheese.

Cellaring Potential

Peter Jorgensen’s Reserve Grand Barossa wines are selected for their longevity and depth of character. This Cabernet Merlot will continue to age developing rich chocolate and mocha flavours with time. With over 5 years age it has already become nicely rounded and balanced.

Winery Profile

The “Premium Reserve” label is allocated to only the most outstanding wines. Peter Jorgensen hand selects truly premium, benchmark wines with rich fruit intensity, complex flavours and structure combined with their long term aging ability. All Premium Reserve wines are an expression of excellent vineyard management and winemaking. The resulting wines are extremely limited and are treated with minimal filtration and additives which result in great length and balance. They are wines that take time to evolve and are given extended cellar maturation to allow all elements to become integrated before bottling. The aging process will continue in bottle and each wine will develop a light crust over time. Please allow this wine to breathe for at least 30 minutes prior to consuming.
