Description

While maturation has taken place in traditional wine barrels for different periods based on variety, these wines are finished in aged Scotch whisky (for the Shiraz, Shiraz Cabernet and Chardonnay) and Irish whiskey (for Cabernet Sauvignon) barrels. Proudly independent, always brutally honest and occasionally irreverent, this site is powered by your donations.

The colour is a deep red/violet and even at this medium high level of alcohol the wine is balanced and smooth on the plate with a great lingering finish. An attractive, savoury palate of blackberry and ripe plum with integrated charry notes and a lovely soft finish.In the event where a product is off or suspected to be off, contact us as soon as possible and do not throw the product out or away until photographs of the bottle front and back and the cork (where a cork is used) top and bottom are taken, so we can investigate the situation fully to ensure that the product is indeed off and liable to a refund. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Golden honey nut fruit and oak is commercially attractive but it’s not real, a facade over a ripe yet tart wine. Just a side note, my wife really liked this one too and her exact words were “I can have a bottle of wine just once and not drink it again, but this one I would definitely keep coming back to”.

The aromas of black fruits, sweet spice and dried herbs linger in the nose, and the palate is full of smooth tannins and a luscious, velvety texture.The fruit is harvested at night when the ambient temperature is cooler, then immediately transported to the winery to be de-juiced ensuring minimal skin contact occurs. The Careful Use Of Aged Scotch Whisky Barrels For Finishing Has Added Complex Nuances Of Almond-husks And Also Softened The Dense Tannins To Yield An Incredible Smoothness. It’s not about subtlety or complexity, it’s about sheer mass of rich and generous flavour, and for that I admire it. Jacob's Creek Winery is located in Australia's most famous wine region, the Barossa Valley, in South Africa, 80 km north of Adelaide. The thing is, there was actually historical precedent for this - in times past, old Spanish sherry barrels shipped to the UK would be re-used for whisky - finishing in sherry barrels was in fact standard practice.
