Limited Edition Shiraz Cabernet 2010 - 40 years with Bernard Hickin
This exceptional wine celebrates the life's work of Jacob's Creek Chief Winemaker Bernard Hickin. Released on his retirement in June 2016...
This Limited Edition wine honors his 40 year contribution to the trusted quality and style that has made Jacob's Creek wines world renowned since 1976.
The bottle label features a pencil sketch of Bernard, and the release has been overseen by his successor, the new Chief Winemaker, Ben Bryant.
Fewer than 900 bottles of the special commemorative bottles are available only online here through Jacob's Creek Wine Club or through Jacob's Creek Cellar Door.
With the Shiraz from the Barossa Valley and the Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawarra this wine reveals complex aromas of blackberry and plum fruits with nuances of chocolate, star anise and cedar oak. On the palate it is a dense and full bodied wine of remarkable finesse with ripe dark berry fruits, spice, licorice flavours and powerfully structured tannins, delivering outstanding concentration and balance.
An excellent accompaniment to rare beef with roasted vegetables or flavoursome game meat dishes.
Still very youthful on bottling, this wonderfully dense, powerfully structured wine will gradually develop with long term cellaring over 10 to 15 years.
