Steeple Jack Shiraz – 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.
In true Steeple Jack tradition, this shiraz is full of character. Deep garnet red in colour with a bright purple hue. The bouquet is filled with dark berry fruits and hints of black pepper and cinnamon spice. The fruit driven palate is soft and succulent with a long flavoursome finish.
