To craft Double Barrel Shiraz, Jacob's Creek started with rich ripe fruit from selected Barossa vineyards. First the Shiraz was matured in traditional oak barrels before being finished in aged Scotch Whisky barrels. This unique double-barrel technique adds smoothness and richness to the palate.
The bouquet is particularly fragrant, with plum, all spice and licorice aromas; the palate is no more than light- to medium-bodied, but does have very good mouthfeel and persistence; indeed, it seems to have done away with the need for tannin support, and the oak impact is minimal. Ready to roll right now.
Lush and meaty with spicy blackberry and ripe red fruits; smooth and balanced, aged in Scotch whiskey barrels; fresh and juicy, bright and deep; ripe and fresh.
