The Winemaker’s Perspective:
Ben Jeanneret aptly christened this wine ‘Rank & File,’ representing the very heart and soul of Australian winemaking. Sourced from select low-yielding, old vines in Clare. The grapes underwent maturation in a blend of French and American oak for a period of 10 months. Year after year, this remains one of our best-selling Shiraz wines, celebrated for its robust black fruit profile and irresistible allure.
With an inky black core, this Shiraz displays exceptional density, a deep, dark red hue. The aromatics are potent, offering notes of liquorice, black plum, and black cherry. Accompanied by hints of vanillin oak, scorched earth, black olive, and black pepper. Decadently rich and incredibly dense, the palate unfolds with layers of black cherry, liquorice, and blackberry. Seamlessly merging with toasty vanillin oak, earthy fennel, and black pepper. The sturdy tannin structure remains largely concealed beneath the sheer weight and density of the fruit, culminating in an exuberant finish.
While ready for immediate fun, Jeanneret Rank and File 2021 Shiraz has the potential to age gracefully over the next 4-5 years, allowing for a truly rewarding wine experience.
