Custodians JSM Shiraz - Cabernet Sauvignon - Cabernet Franc

Current vintage

2014

James Stanley Malpas who was a highly decorated Captain in the armed forces and the past owner of the land on which the Fox Creek vineyards are grown.

Appearance

Deep red with purple hues.

Bouquet

An enticing array of black cherry, blood plum, smoky toast, liquorice, vanilla bean, hints of charcuterie and herbal spearmint lift. Black cardamom, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg aromas derived from barrels used in fermentation add aromatic complexity.

Palate

Raspberry, red cherry, plum and blackcurrant, hints of strawberry and vanilla cream, rich toasty oak and dark chocolate. The wine's luscious fruit is framed by long textural Cabernet tannins integrated with balanced and elegant oak tannins. JSM is a wine of complexity and substance.

Winemaking

Shiraz components were selected for fruit richness and elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon for ripe round tannins and length and the Cabernet Franc batches were selected for aromatic lift and fruit weight. All varieties were matured in 1 to 4 year old French and American barrels for 19 months prior to blending.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 14.5%

Ageing potential

We suggest this wine is ideal for enjoying with food. 2 to 8 years of cellaring will form a softer more complex wine, and for those who love very aged wines the firm tannins should see easily achieve 12 or more years.
