Jacob's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Medium intensity ruby, with a vibrant purple hue. Bouquet: The aroma displays attractive ripe blackcurrant with a leafy herbal lift, and underlying subtle spice and anise. Palate: The wine is medium to full-bodied, with flavours of blackcurrant, cassis and ripe berries. The wine finishes with slight mint, and a hint of pepper. The fine, ripe tannins create a wine that is well structured, approachable and balanced, expressing true varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy with red meat dishes such as beef fillet.

In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant called Johann Gramp missed the wine he used to drink in his home land. Instead of changing his habits, he decided to start growing grapes and attempt to make the wine himself. It was a way of adapting to a new country, but still staying true to his character. What he didn’t know was that when he planted the Barossa Valley’s first commercial vineyard along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, he was also planting the seeds of one of the most popular wine brands in the world that would be named after the waterway.  Today,  Jacob's Creek remains one of the most well known, trusted and enjoyed Australian wines around the world. It delivers fresh, elegant and great tasting wines that show true varietal character.  The philosophy of Jacob's Creek is to offer a range of wines that suit all occasions.  As a company, we concentrate on two key things: The first is continuous improvement. Every vintage we strive to improve the quality of our wines by refining our winemaking practices and continually gaining a greater understanding of our vineyards. The second is that in everything we do, at every step of the winemaking process, from the vineyards all the way through to your glass, we all work with the final destination in mind. We do it for the most important wine critic. You. Read less

Vintage Conditions: The growing season leading up to the 2009 harvest followed a similar pattern to previous years, with relatively low rainfall throughout winter and spring. Extremely hot conditions during late January and early February required careful management of our vineyards to ensure the vines received sufficient water and nutrients to maintain healthy leaf canopies. Fortunately the hot mid-summer weather was followed by much milder weather throughout the remainder of the vintage. This provided good ripening conditions for both Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with the development of fresh attractive fruit flavours, strong colours and soft, ripe tannins. Winemaking: Individual vineyards were regularly monitored throughout the ripening period, with berry flavour ripeness and sugar/acid balance used as the criteria for determining optimum harvest dates. Parcels of fruit were destemmed and crushed into static and rotary fermentation vessels and fermented on skins for around seven to ten days, at temperatures between 18 and 26øC. Cap management techniques were optimised for each individual parcel, to maximise the extraction of desirable colour and flavour components while maintaining soft tannin structures typical of the Jacobs Creek style. On pressing off of skins, the free-run and thepressings components were blended together to give greater tannin structure and balance to the wine. The various components were matured separately before allocation into the final blend. The wine was lightly filtered directly before bottling.

Intense plum and berry fruit with classic spicy Shiraz notes, married to the leafy, mint and chocolate of Cabernet Sauvignon and a hint of vanillin oak. The palate is medium-bodied, with generous cherry/berry fruits and spicy plum flavors complemented by well-integrated, subtle, mouth-filling chocolate tannins and a soft, balanced finish.

A light, smooth quaffer that'll get you through the summer, this blend of 81% Shiraz and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon boasts aromas and flavors of charcoal-grilled black cherries tinged with chocolate.

Bright in flavor, a distinctive style with berry, tomato and herb character that won't strike everyone as ideal. Drink now.

The rustic cherry fruit of this wine is jammy but not heavy. Serve it with lamb, braised or grilled.

Light and fruity, with pretty raspberry and cream notes, finishing with a modest bite of tannin. Drink now.
