Intense blackberry, liquorice, and pudding spice with lively black pepper notes. Subtle smoky cedar oak flavours complement the silky mouth feel, providing a beautifully structured and pleasantly tactile wine.

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

Snowing some evolution on the nose this reveals hints of tobacco quite quickly followed by white floral notes, hints of cedar, some soil tones, a hint of rare beef and slightly stewy strawberry and black cherry fruits. Smooth in the mouth and quite polished with supple tannins and acidity that just barely peeks out through the delicate gauze of wild cherry and tobacco flavors. With a bit of air this gains additional freshness and reveals some more floral toned aromas in the mouth along with a lovely plummy/blackberry pie note that carries on the surprisingly long finish. the alcohol is just a hint noticeable on the finish but it doesn’t detract here. Rather refined and elegant. 87pts

This Shiraz is a medium bodied wine with generous aromas of pepper, licorice and plum, leaving a soft textured finish on the palate. At our place this wine is enjoyed with great gusto alongside beef, lamb, chicken and amongst friends.

Fresh and refreshing, with pretty plum and floral flavors on a spacious frame, lingering without weightiness. Drink now.

Pretty impressive for the price, offering mint and cedar aromas followed by flavors of black cherry. There’s also a sturdy core of savory elements, like roasted meat and coffee. The wine is full bodied and velvety in texture, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now and over the next few years.

You can thank the weather for this seta, a clean, fresh, savory shiraz that shows the quality of the vintage in its fragrant fruit. This is not chippy and it's not pushed, just a simple, lovely red… for $13.
