Graded Collection McLaren Vale Shiraz
Just as different steak cuts have different flavour, texture and appeal - so do different Shiraz wines.
The Pepperjack Graded Collection showcases two different styles of Shiraz, created by our winemaker to perfectly match two of his favourite cuts of steak: Scotch Fillet and Porterhouse.
The Pepperjack Graded McLaren Vale Shiraz was hand crafted to partner with Scotch Fillet as the McLaren Vale region produces Shiraz that is highly concentrated with lots of fruit flavour, as well as a richness to balance the rich flavours of the Scotch Fillet.
Rich and dark red in colour with a dark purple rim, the nose shows a concentrated layer of blue and black fruits, dark chocolate and hints mocha and savoury oak notes. The palate is rich and plush with an excellent structure. There are concentrated layers of blue and black berry fruits blended with balanced oak. Fine, velvety tannins give length and power, with a soft and full finish.This wine is matured in a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for 15 months. It can be enjoyed now but will also improve with careful cellaring.
