2019 Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz Cabernet


Tasting Notes

Deep purple. Boysenberry and mulberry aromas with a hint of cedar and pepper. Similar berry fruits show through on the opulent, textured palate with 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 earlier later than usual due to the cooler temperatures and slower ripening. This has resulted in good parcels ofChardonnay 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.
