Food Pairings for Dutschke Shiraz Barossa Valley St. Jakobi
The Shiraz grapes for our "St. Jakobi" come from the vines planted in 1975 by Oscar's son Ken Semmler (my uncle) on this family property. We've been blessed by having this vineyard in a region that consistently produces quality fruit year after year. The Shiraz from this special patch of vines typically gives us wine that is rich spice, dark cherry and chocolate characters with great structure for longevity in the bottle. In 2005 we harvested the Shiraz block on 2 occasions. First picking half of the crop on the 18th of March, starting on the eastern side of the block, and then 9 days later on the 27th March harvesting the balance of the fruit on the western side. In doing this, we pick across the flavour-ripening spectrum resulting in more complexity than what we would find if we were to harvest all the fruit on the one day. The wine has then matured in a combination of both French and American oak hogsheads, supplied by 9 different coopers. After 20 months I combine the wines from those better barrels to make a wine of complexity that shows the full potential of the Shiraz fruit. We trust you'll enjoy it!
