The aromas are complex with blackcurrant, spice & a touch of mint. The palate is as intense as the nose with rich fruit, firm by silky tannins & a long finish.
From the Winery
The Pepperjack range is a tribute to the Barossa’s rich heritage. Our winemaking team has respect for traditional winemaking techniques and is also dynamic and imaginative. The Pepperjack winemakers are conscious of modern wine styles, and are creating wines that reflect our passion for this special region. The Pepperjack wines are rich and honest - showcasing the Barossa’s outstanding qualities.
After rain periods through the winter, spring brought very dry weather during summer with growing season rainfall being one of the driest on record. Winter temperatures were normal with plenty of early frosts giving some good winter chilling. Yields were average and with no rain during the ripening part of the season fruit was able to be harvested at optimum maturity.
After crushing and de-stemming, the parcels of fruit were fermented separately in traditional style open fermenters. The wines were gently pressed, racked and transferred to French and American oak for 15 months maturation before blending and bottling. Individual parcels of fruit are matured separately to maximise the blends complexity through a staged selection process. The resultant wine is rich and concentrated with distinct varietal leafy notes. The palate is plush with lots of flavour balanced by fine textural tannins.
