“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 he met. Our tribute to him is this full bodied Shiraz which displays rich peppery fruit over a firm underlying structure with great length.” – Geoff Merrill
The colour is a dark blood red with hints of purple in the hue. The aroma is warm and inviting, displaying spice, earth, leather, black olive, savoury meats and McLaren Vale chocolate.
The palate shows ripe red berries, plum and blackberry with rounded grippy tannins and lively acidity.
