2012 Geoff Merrill Premium Jacko Shiraz

Out of Stock

Winemaker's Notes

The colour is a deep blood red with purple hues and great depth. The aroma shows white pepper, spices, menthol, black olive, savoury smoked meats and a hint of leather.

The palate is smooth and full, with dark fruits of black currant and mulberry integrating well with creamy oak.

Drink now or put it away for a few more years.

Will go well with a nice steak, lamb casserole, bbq, pizza and cheese.

Vintage information: More vigorous canopy growth during bud development in 2011, ensured fewer bunches per vine and lighter bunch weights for the 2012 vintage effectively dropping yield rates 35 - 50%.
For the most part, growing conditions were optimal right through the growing season with a few temperature and rainfall events which caused some anxiety. Immediately following the high temperatures was some cool weather and a large rain event which slowed down ripening and allowed the vintage to progress at a good rate.

Alc/vol: 14.5%
