Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

The nose shows an array of dark savoury fruit, Blueberry, Mulberry and ripe plum, with hints of dark cherry, spice, and mocha oak.

Flavours and Palate

The palate shows layers of blackberries, Satsuma plum and dark bitter chocolate. Fine velvety tannins and a slatey minerality from the ferruginous soils give a seamlessness drive and persistence while still showing the hallmarks of Pepperjack's rich plush fruit character.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The 2021 winter was the wettest winter since 1996. October and November also presented rainfall totals above average. A large rain event at the end of February was welcome relief after another dry summer which assisted in freshening up the vines leading into harvest. The Barossa Valley experienced below average temperatures for the beginning of the growing season. January was warmer than average, while February was below average. During the ripening period there were 11 days where the temperature that exceeded 35°C, but the temperature did not reach 40°C. The Barossa Valley experienced two severe hailstorm that decimated some vineyards. The first hit the central Barossa Valley the second hitting some of the northern vineyards. February, March and April made the vintage, with a lingering Indian summer of mild yet dry days of below average temperatures ripening low but intense crops of bountiful flavour and natural acidity. Winemakers are talking about V22 wines as elegant and structured, with depth and length of flavour.
