Jacob's Creek Sparkling Shiraz

Cracka Review

Colour: Deep ruby crimson with purple hues.

Bouquet: Rich berry fruit with lifted Shiraz spice and slight pepper notes.

Palate: Full weight but with refreshing blackberry, and rich raspberry fruit characters. Soft velvety tannin and fine persistent mousse contribute to a very satisfying texture and a clean balance finished.

Jacob's Creek Sparkling Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer says
This finely-tuned leviathan of a company has done it again, this time with a wine that every maker seems to have a go at, but so few companies can truly make well. Over the last few years we have always managed to find a handful of JC wines worthy of inclusion in this imperial list and this inexpensive red sprinted into place without so much as a glance over its shoulder at the flagging competition. The stunning, briary, beautifully balanced, dry-butnot- tannic themes work so well here. We have virtually no other sparkling reds in our list this year and this wine is one of the reasons why.When you can buy JCSS for fourteen bucks,why would you spend twice as much on a wine that’s half as good? Black plums, pepper and spice abound and the juiciness is cut with savoury spice – WOW.

This is the first time a Jacob's Greek sparkling red has graced our table and, you know, it's pretty damn tasty! It's full of cherries and plum and, while there's a deal of sweetness, it fits in well with the style. There's a good hit of juicy, toasty, berried flavour - nice work!
