(From 2009 Vintage) Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz 2009 is full, in depth, and bright crimson in hue. Richly perfumed and aromatic, with intense dark berry fruits, hints of black pepper spice and sweet vanillin oak. A rich core of ripe black fruits, layered subtly with black pepper and restrained, stylish oak, supported by softly textured fruit tannins and concluding with a long, savory finish.
Deep crimson with dark red hues. Lifted aromas of mulberry and blackberry with underlying hints of cloves and anise, balanced by spicy oak notes. Palate: Full bodied wine displaying rich fruit flavours of dark berries and plums and velvety tannins. Lovely acid balance and integration of flavours result in a supple and engaging wine with a lingering finish of spice, chocolate and mocha. Cellaring Potential: A true expression of Australian Shiraz, to be enjoyed now, but with careful cellaring will develop gracefully over the next ten years. Serving suggestion: An ideal accompaniment to braised lamb shanks, eye-fillet of beef or hard cheeses.
