Steeple Jack Cabernet Sauvignon – South Australia
In the days when ballast stone was an important feature of some of Australia’s most iconic buildings, the daring Steeplejacks played a crucial role in their construction and maintenance. As skilled craftsmen, they completed the most difficult work on the highest towers, oblivious to vertigo, gravity and mortality.
We make our Steeple Jack wines with nothing but the fruit in mind – they are uncomplicated & approachable. Blackcurrant, plum and tobacco leaf dominate the nose. Full, rich, fleshy palate of mulberry, black cherry and spice upfront laced with hints of dutch chocolate and mint supported by fine texture, and soft tannins on the finish.
