In 1926 Reinhold Bernhard Jenke purchased this vineyard and John Jenke was born and raised on this property. Through the generations we have tended and nurtured the vines for nearly 100 years.
This Shiraz is a fantastic example of the style and quality produced from the Jenke Estate Vineyards. The wine is deep red in colour with a complex nose of savoury fruit, olives and some French oak spice, including cinnamon and cloves. The palate is wonderfully rich with the bonus of bottle age which has softened and made the wine eminently approachable.
The palate kicks off with blackberry fruit, then the secondary characters appear with roasted meat notes and toasty oak predominant. There is plenty of layers to this wine and the flavours flow through the palate. It finishes with silky soft tannins and good length of fruit.
