Overview

Overview

The Pepperjack range is a tribute to the Barossa's rich heritage. Our winemaking team has respect for traditional winemaking techniques, yet is also dynamic and imaginative. Pepperjack winemakers are conscious of modern wine styles and create wines that reflect our passion for this special region.


After crushing and destemming, the parcels of fruit were fermented separately in traditional style fermenters. The wines were gently pressed, racked and transferred then maturated for 12 months before blending and bottling.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

A medley of dark red cherry, cranberry and ripe raspberries, warm spice and hints of mocha.

Flavours and Palate

The palate is rich and structured showing, bright fruits with silky and plush tannins which give length and finesse while finishing soft and full of flavour.

Viticulture

Viticulture

The growing season started off well, with Winter 2017 rainfall higher than average. However, Spring and December rainfall was lower than average, this led to drier soils, combined with warmer than average October and November days meant the vine canopies grew quickly; flowering well and setting a good number of bunches.


January and February were warm and dry, with very warm temperatures in February slowing down the pace of ripening. The Indian summer of March and early April was 'the icing on the cake', with average temperatures, without extremes, perfect for finishing off ripening to allow full flavored wines which retained natural acidity and freshness.
