Notes about product

After a wet winter, spring was warmer and drier than average. Late spring and early summer were relatively mild, resulting in good flowering and fruit set. There were several heat spikes in mid to late summer, but then a perfect Autumn followed with favourable ripening conditions. Despite a later start and an earlier finish, the compressed harvest produced wines of deep colour, flavour and impeccable balance.

Tasting notes

Lifted blackcurrant and blueberry aromas entwine with biscuity French oak, hints of liquorice and more savoury, black olive notes. Bright, juicy and rich blue fruits flow onto the palate which is medium to full-bodied. Briary spice, black olive and cedary hints add to the mix with a touch of new oak sweetness and silky tannins to add complexity to the fruity and velvety finish.

August 2021

The dark-purple 2018 Jackaman's Cabernet Sauvignon—sourced from vineyards in Lyndoch and Light Pass—is a marvel of cassis-fruit purity, framed by barely detectable French oak (51% new). Medium to full-bodied, it's supple enough to be approachable now, but it really deserves four or five years of cellaring, just to allow the flavors to evolve from primary simplicity into secondary complexity. Rich and velvety on the finish, it appears capable of up to two decades of positive evolution.
