Wine of The Month April 2019

Jip Jip Rocks 2016 Shiraz Cabernet
Winemaking Notes
Fermentation took place over 10 – 12 days in a combination of open and static fermenters. The temperature was closely monitored to ensure the wine retains its natural fruit expression. New and older French and American oak was used for the maturation of selected
wine parcels over a period of 11 months. These parcels were put
together from our family estate to best demonstrate the depth and character of our fruit, balanced by integrated oak.

Vintage Overview
2016 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry
days. Yields were generally low and this did result in some
excellent parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was
carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the
vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.

Tasting Notes
Deep purple. Boysenberry and mulberry aromas with a hint of
cedar and pepper. Similar berry fruits show through on the opulent, textured palate with a lingering finish.
