Gold Medals at both Royal Sydney and Adelaide Wine shows in 2016. That’s a fair bit of bling for a wine that seems to live its life constantly on discount. If it had to have a performance review each year, it’d have good truck for a price (pay) rise.
Jacob’s Creek, Reserve, Shiraz, Limestone Coast, 2015
Globfulls of plum sauce, blackberry, a little white pepper, creamy mocha oak influences and some earthy black mud (think drying dam). Full and ripe palate, it doesn’t immediately strike the same (p)re(con)ceptors that would come about looking at the label. It’s hearty without being crass and even finishes with decent amount of grippy tannins. Find it cheaper (actually, I dare you to find it at full RRP), for extra value.
