Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Shiraz Limestone Coast South Australia
Jamiesons Run are deeply rooted in the history of Limestone Coast and the Coonawarra. They have assembled parcels of their best fruit to construct the archetypal blended Aussie red. An easy to appreciate claret style, Cabernet Sauvignon contributes mulberry and blueberry fruit flavours while Shiraz gives ripe blackberry and dark cherry with subtle spice. The addition of Merlot brings sweet dark plum flavours and hints of chocolate, giving the wine lift and grace. Essential at your next luncheon or twilight barbeque, to accompany sizzling beef or braised casserole.
The original Jamiesons Run was a remote outback sheep station owned by the Jamieson Brothers in the mid 1800s. The winery was named after the siblings as a tribute to the Limestone Coast's pioneering past. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot are gently fermented over the course of a week with light aerative pumpovers. After gently pressing off skins, parcels are racked and transferred to a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels to complete malolactic. Components are treated to an extended maturation, infusing depth and complexity whilst taming the tannins, followed by assemblage into a finely textured wine with great depth of palate and splendid lingering finish.
Vibrant dark crimson. A rich, lifted nose with aromas of raspberry, dark plum and cherry, lightly crushed fresh mint with a gentle lick of spice. The intense aromatics are enhanced by ageing in fine oak. A soft medium bodied palate showing dark plum, blackcurrant, berry and cinnamon. A silky soft texture and fine tannins, good balance and finesse, generous with great depth of flavour before a long flavourful finish.
