Cracka Review

We love shiraz in this country, and here is one we can buy with loose change! Smells of dark fruits, mocha and toastiness decorate the nose, whilst the palate is more medium-bodied, soft and slinky, with sweet plum flavours at its centre, soft tannins, and a smooth, juicy finish with a lick of spice. Lamb burgers would be the bomb with this!

Winemaker's Notes

Vibrant yet silky with spicy plum and blackberries leading to a long, satisfying finish. Spicy blackberry fruit, with hints of dark chocolate and toasty oak. Enjoy on its own or with roast leg of lamb or hard cheeses such as Cheddar.

Jacob's Creek Classic Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Restrained and fine-grained, with a shy, lightly spicy and faintly cedary bouquet of red berries and plums backed by dusty notes of licorice, cloves and cinnamon, Quite supple, finishing with some leanness, it delivers a pleasing length of bright red and black berry flavour, finishing with fresh acids and balance.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Elegant, supple and fine-grained, with a bright, spicy bouquet of plums, dark berries, violets and raspberry confection backed by earthy, meaty nuances. It's smooth, soft and evenly ripened, with a lingering core of sweet small berries and licorice knit with restrained oak and supported by fine-grained tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Lightly spicy and floral aromas of raspberries, blueberries, mulberries and hints of cassis are knit with restrained chocolate/vanilla oak. It's juicy and jammy, slightly baked, with a measured length of flavour over a fine, dusty backbone, finishing with fresh fruit and soft acids.

Contrary to popular opinion, wine is no place for snobbery. If a wine's good, it's good. This is. You little beauty. Full of sweet-centred fruit flavour -though it's as much about smooth, clean, easy-going texture as it is about richness of flavour. It tastes of licorice and raspberries. This vintage of this wine would be one of the easiest red wines in the world to drink. Bravo.

Reflects the 2002 vintage; far more depth to the fruit than normal years; good length, too.
