Get to know two new Jacob's Creek wines, both perfect accompaniments to hearty meals for the cooler months ahead
THE WINE: BAROSSA SIGNATURE RANGE CABERNET SAUVIGNON AND SHIRAZ
Australian wine brand Jacob’s Creek has just released their Barossa Signature range, that tells the story of the region's reds. Paying tribute to the home of Jacob’s Creek, the Barossa Signature range expresses the character of the brand’s home through two wines – a Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The full-bodied cabernet sauvignon showcases the classic flavours of ripe black Barossa fruit, while the shiraz has intense dark fruit flavours with great length and structure.
TASTING NOTES AND MEAL MATCHES
The Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich blackberry aroma, spicy notes and dense, chewy tannins, and the Shiraz has a velvety mid-palate and brooding tannins.
Jacob’s Creek chief winemaker, Dan Swincer, says the structure and complexity of the wines make them the perfect accompaniment for a hearty meal during the cold autumn and winter months.
“With its ancient soils and warm, dry climate, The Barossa is world famous for producing high quality wines of intensity. Each wine from the Barossa Signature range delivers flavours that celebrate the classic varietal expressions from within the Australia’s premier wine country.
“From braised lamb shanks or eye-fillet of beef, the wines interact with food in a wonderful way that will enhance each and every dining experience,” he says.
Enjoy both with hard cheeses and hearty meat dishes.
