Pepperjack Single Vineyard Series Barossa Shiraz 2022


Pepperjack is perhaps best known for their cracking value, delicious reds, so this is somewhat of a departure, but a most welcome one. From a single vineyard in the Greenock sub-region, there is a dollop of Cabernet included in this superb red. Very dark purple in colour, this is generous, plush and with saturated flavours and good extract. The nose exhibits notes of mocha, coffee beans, chocolate, dried herbs, blueberries, spices, cassis and black fruits. There is good length here and fine tannins with the emergence of aniseed and soy. Excellent focus and energy, this very attractive Shiraz will provide great drinking for the next six to ten years and probably much longer. But opening a bottle soon won’t do anyone any harm.
