The nose on our 2017 Jack Harrison Shiraz is a huge blast of cassis-driven pepper spiced plum, over a savoury ‘butchers block’ undertone.
The palate of this four year old youngster is a wall of juicy, dark, lush berry fruit, kept in shape by solid tramlines of beautifully silken tannins, throughout a very long persistent fruit driven palate.
The acid / tannin / fruit balance is impressive and it will be exciting to watch this wine open and age - which we expect will happen quite gracefully.
We expect our 2017 vintage of Jack Harrison Shiraz to be another keeper, so on this assessment we'd suggest potential cellaring of up to 10-15 years.
This wine is named after our grandson Jack who is currently training to become our future winemaker and viticulturist. Made from our single vineyard Shiraz vines which boast an average vine age of 50 years, our cool climate premium Shiraz is handcrafted to be elegant and memorable.
