Geoff Merrill Jacko’s Shiraz - 12 pack
The colour is a strong ruby red with brick red hues. Subtle savoury meats come forward first on the aroma, then opening up to warm, ripe red berry fruits and spice. Fresh toasted oak notes complete this complex nose.
Initially the palate is fine and soft, then it builds into a well structured and full flavoured wine with time in the mouth. An abundance of silky tannins adds depth and longevity to the well defined red fruit flavours. This vintage will be a 'quiet achiever', surprising us all with how well it continues to develop into the future. Enjoy with rich smoked brisket, sticky pork ribs, lamb shanks, pizza and a beef and bacon pie.”
“Michael “Jacko” James worked in our cellars until he succumbed to a long battle with leukemia at the age of 26. His legendary character and courage left a lasting impression on
everyone. Our tribute to him is this full-bodied Shiraz which displays rich peppery fruit over
a firm underlying structure with great length.” - Geoff Merrill
