Overview

The Pepperjack range is a tribute to the Barossa’s rich heritage.

Our winemaking team has respect for traditional winemaking techniques and is also dynamic and imaginative. The Pepperjack winemakers are conscious of modern wine styles, and are creating wines that reflect our passion for this special region. The Pepperjack wines are rich and honest - showcasing the Barossa’s outstanding qualities. After crushing and destemming, the parcels of fruit were fermented separately in traditional style open fermenters. The wines were gently pressed, racked and transferred to French and American oak for 15 months maturation before blending and bottling.

Expert Reviews

Deep purple-crimson; the choice of new and used French and American oak is presumably driven by 'not broken, don't fix' thinking, and the acceptance of the style by loyal followers of the brand. It's actually a very good cabernet, despite the American oak, with crystal-clear blackcurrant fruit and fine tannins. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep plum red in colour.

Aroma

Aromas of ripe dark berry fruits, black currants and plums with mint and varietal leafy notes.

Palate

The palate is rich and flavoursome, full of plush, dark fruit with some savouriness and hints of oak. The tannins are soft, talcy / chalky that gives generous length and balance while finishing rich and soft.

Cellaring

This wine can be enjoyed now but will also improve with careful cellaring.
