2019 Blackjack Shiraz

2019 Blackjack Shiraz

Tasting Note:

Blackjack Vineyards is situated on an easterly slope, in the old Apple and Pear growing district of the Harcourt Valley on the foothills of Mt.Alexander. Although just south of Bendigo, the climate is considerably cooler, and normally blessed with “Indian Summer” autumns – cool night and warm clear day- allowing the grapes to slowly ripen. The soil is mostly very old, and not overly fertile, granitic soils. The vineyard is hand pruned and hand-harvested. The Shiraz  block was planted in 1988.

The Wine

Fermented in traditional open fermenters, hand plunged and aged in small American oak barriques for 22 months.

Brick red in colour. Aromas or plums and blackberry, spice as well.

Full and generous on the palate with sweet plum and dark berries, roasted nut flavours against a background of creamy American oak tannins.

Bottle age will allow these flavours to coalesce further to add nuance and complexity.

Perfect with rare barbecued fillet steak with a red wine sauce.

Suggested Cellaring 4-10 years
