Overview

Overview

Pepperjack was first released in 1998 with a 1996 Barossa Shiraz. After spending five years exclusively in bars, clubs and restaurants Pepperjack has gone from strength to strength, with the Barossa Shiraz a real Aussie favourite. Since its release Pepperjack Shiraz has consistently received the honour of being Australia’s Number 1 red wine by value.

Rich dark red and blue fruits, ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and rich mocha notes are enveloped by hints of spice and integrated oak. The palate is rich and plush with concentrated layers of blackberry, blue fruits and oak, balanced with soft layers of tannins to give length and finesse.

Vintage Conditions

South Australia had to cope with a drier and warmer than average growing season prior to the 2019 harvest. The rainfall for the growing season was lower than average but many growers managed this by consistent irrigations throughout the growing season. South Australia experienced 11 days over 35ºC during December and January with one of the hottest days on record. A cooler than average February allowed the vines to recover from the hotter than average December and January, which allowed all varieties to achieve optimal flavour ripeness and intensity
