2017 Jeanneret Stand & Deliver
- Clare Valley
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
A special bottling pf Stand & Deliver Shiraz given extended barrel aging to celebrate the 3oth Anniversary of Jeanneret Wines.
To put "extended" into some kind of context, normally a red wine will be aged in barrel for 12-18 moths. But to add extra depth and richness and to do something special to celebrate thirty years of producing wine, this Stand & Deliver Shiraz was aged in oak for between 65 and 71 months. Only four barrels were produced.
Still extraordinarily deeply coloured, the wine has a wonderfully dark and rich nose of chocolate, cocoa, coffee and velvety plums. There's spice too and a hint of truffle; and lots of blackberry and notes of prosciutto - it's all very inviting.
The palate has marvellous intensity and a silky texture - really heavyweight and luxurious silk. The fruit is dark and complex and goes on and on. An unashamedly luxurious wine that will appeal to the heart with its sheer deliciousness, and to the head with its depth and complexity.
Fabulous to drink on its own (for reasons, see above) but terrific with wild boar, venison, kangaroo or a beef stew with dark chocolate.
