Overview

Overview

While the Pepperjack team have respect for traditional winemaking techniques, their style is dynamic and imaginative. Pepperjack winemakers are conscious of modern wine styles, and create wine that reflects their passion for the regions the wines are made from. This is reflective in all Pepperjack wines, as their rich and honest nature showcases outstanding qualities.

The 2021 Sangiovese was crushed and destemmed before the parcels of fruit were fermented separately in traditional style fermenters. The parcels were gently pressed, racked and transferred partially into tank and partially into oak barrels for maturation before blending and bottling.

Vintage Conditions

The 2021 growing season for South Australia started with about average rainfall, and some early frosts at the end of September. November had higher than average temperatures, but a cooler Summer provided optimal ripening conditions. Rain in early February gave the growers some relief from irrigation. Yields for most varieties were about average compared to the last two vintages. The cooler growing season allowed the fruit to ripen slowly and allowed winemakers to take their time with harvest decisions and pick the fruit when it was at its optimum.
