Orlando Wines Jacob's Creek Shiraz Autre Appellation Rosé 2009
External Reviews for Orlando Wines Jacob's Creek Shiraz Autre Appellation Rosé
A succulent, juicy Merlot loaded with berry and plum flavors over light tannins. Wear a bib.
Sweet berry fruits highlighted by subtle spicy tobacco leaf undertones. Sprightly plum and berry flavors complement the rich structure and spicy soft finish.
Red cherry fruit is swathed in oaky tannins, which continue on through to the finish. A good entry-level Merlot for casual circumstances.
Plenty of plum flavors wrapped within a soft texture. Its rich, medium body will complement most entrées.
Light and fruity, with appealing raspberry and white pepper flavors, which echo softly. Drink now.
This soft and lovely red wine has aromas of ripe red berries and baking spices, with a bit of vanilla adding heft and substance. It is medium-bodied and round on the palate, with an appealing velvety texture.
Vintage Conditions: A dry winter preceded the 2009 growing season. There was little rainfall during winter and spring, and extremely hot conditions during late January and early February followed by much milder conditions carrying right through the harvest period, giving rise to well-ripened and diseasefree fruit. Harvesting of both Cabernet and Merlot took place throughout in February and March, generally one to two weeks earlier than normal. Winemaking: Vineyard assessments were regularly undertaken by winemakers during the ripening period, firstly to identify parcels of fruit displaying the specificflavour profile desired for Jacob?s Creek Cabernet Merlot, and secondly to determine the optimum harvest date. Fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and delivered to the winery. The grapes were then crushed and de-stemmed to stainless steel fermentation vessels. Batch winemaking techniques were used; with whole berries included in some ferments, whilst other ferment batches were drained and returned to maximise extraction of colour, flavour and tannins from the grape skins. These techniques along with moderate fermentation temperatures provided the winemaking team with a complex array of base wines, from which they were able to create a blended wine showing all the expected Jacob?s Creek characteristics of approachability, generous fruit flavours and consistency.
