Jacob’s Creek Barossa Signature Shiraz 2015

There’s been a recent and quite public legal stoush over the usage of the term “signature” on the label from Jacob’s Creek and their parent company, Pernod-Ricard. I wouldn’t say it divided the wine industry in Australia, but it certainly put a stir among it. But enough of that. Dark packaging for the new release of their “Barossa Signature” shiraz….

Jacob’s Creek, Barossa Signature, Shiraz, Barossa, 2015

Smoky plums, lipstick, polish/sheen, sour cream and mulberry. Full palate which feels a little strained: the fruit is bursting from the short stitch, flat of the tongue tannins that are attempting to hold it in. A little heat hits the back palate before the strands of mixed berry jam signal the sweet end. It’s not a bad wine if your religion forbade you from drinking anything other than sub $20 Barossa wines, but if I had a choice of this or the Reserve, I’d pick the latter.

RRP: $19.99
Alc: 14.5%
