Top End Stuff From One Of Australia’s Most Trusted

Coonawarra Cab with an extra layer here. Not just beautiful fruit, not just time in one barrel, but these babies finished maturing in old Whisky casks (Jamieson, to be exact, what else?)

The Bottom Line

  • A new deluxe label from Jacob’s Creek
  • 94 Points - James Halliday
  • Utilises a unique double-barrel finishing technique in aged whiskey barrels

From Mr Halliday:

"...cassis to the fore, and given complexity by touches of Coonawarra earth and herb; classy, integrated and balanced tannins add depth and length."

- 94 Points, drink to 2022.

Palate
The complex palate reveals itself with style. Traditionally assertive Coonawarra tannins are evident at first, before giving way to a mid palate filled with ripe cassis, olive tapenade and complex briary hints. Fine, dusty tannins give excellent line and length, and are layered with sweet and toasty characters reminiscent of crème brûlèe.
Highlights
Our unique Double Barrel technique of finishing in aged Irish whiskey barrels has integrated the myriad of flavours and brought extra richness to the palate.

"Jacob's Creek Double Barrel Cab Sauv 2012"

Vintage: 2012

by
A good mid-range Coonawarra CabSauv with a bit more tannin than usual. Needed to swirl the glass to get the best flavour. It was a terrific buy using the WineMarket $30 discount! (3.5 star rating)

"Double Barrel"

Vintage: 2012

This is an excellent quality wine that we enjoyed very much. The dryness on the palate was good. It is well balanced in body, flavour, acidity etc. We particularly loved the fruity flavours of blackberries, dark cherries. The wine made justice to the eye fillet we both enjoyed. Would recommend to any connoisseur of wines who appreciates a work of art.

Very good drop. Good value for the price. The aging in the whiskey barrels makes it very nice

This is a quality wine. Do not be put off by the price or that it is Jacobs Creek. The aging in whiskey barrels creates a smooth wine with a good finish that goes very well with cheese, pasta, bbq, roast beef, etc. Not a bad price, it retails about $25 plus.
