“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 deep blood red with purple hues and great depth. The aroma shows white pepper, spices, menthol, black olive, savoury smoked meats and a hint of leather.
The palate is smooth and full, with dark fruits of black currant and mulberry integrating well with creamy oak.
95 points – James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
