2017 Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz


Tasting Notes

Lifted spice and ripe mulberry/blackberry aromas are complimented with chocolate, cedar and cinnamon on the nose. Well-integrated oak tannin provides flavours of clove and supple texture, which supports the rich plum, blackberry and mocha. The overall structure is supple and generous with fine-grained tannin and a lingering finish.

Winemaking Report

Fermentation took place over 10 – 12 days in a combination of open and static fermenters. The temperature was closely monitored to ensure the wine retains its natural fruit expression. New and older French and American oak was used for the maturation of selected wine parcels over a period of 13 months. These parcels were put together from our family estate to best demonstrate the depth and character of our fruit, balanced by integrated oak.

Vintage Conditions

 

Harvest commenced three weeks later than usual due to the cooler
temperatures and slower ripening. This has resulted in good parcels of
Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with lovely aromatics & flavour.
Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon have good colour with concentrated
berry flavours, vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in
our wines.
