Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is deep red with vibrant dark cherry hues and a tint of mahogany on the rim.
The bouquet is immediately engaging with distinct Barossa individuality. It’s rich and complex ranging from black currant and cassis through medicinal herbs to the smoky, gamy aroma of a gourmet deli. Entwined in the heady mix is premium oak with subtle hints of menthol and eucalyptus.
The multi layered complexity flows through onto the palate opening with rich dark fruits steeped in aged brandy spirit. The mid palate is weighty and full, dominated by stomping tannins, cedar wood and vanillin oak while the back palate is sophisticated and refined with smoky game, dark chocolate and mocha, finishing with a note of botanical herbs and cloves. The intensity of flavour is balanced by the firm, drying tannins and velvety alcohol length in this elegant wine.
This wine has plenty of flavour and substance. It’s ideal to enjoy with complex rich cuisine like confit of duck, venison or hare. The intense flavours of truffle, Foie gras and blue cheeses are a great match with this wine.
Peter Jorgensen’s Premier Reserve wines are selected for their longevity and depth of character. This Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon will stand the test of time and age for years to come. It will continue to develop deeper chocolate and mocha flavours as the primary fruit flavours soften. This is a fine example of solid Barossa Cabernet from premium, old vineyards.
