Pepperjack, by the illustrious House of Saltram, has grown to be a cult favourite for enthusiasts of profound yet approachable Shiraz. The Pepperjack team are conscious of modern tastes and are creating wines for aspirants of great gastronomy and better beef. Fruit is sourced from superb vineyards yielding grapes with generous fruit character, definitive varietal flavour, fine tannin structure and an innate affinity to steak. The pick of McLaren Vale's harvests have been assembled into an intense style of Shiraz to balance the richness of juicy Scotch Fillet.
Choice McLaren Vale vineyards, some of which carry great distinction, are source of the opulent Shiraz grapes which are at the core of Pepperjack. Traditional winemaking works hand in hand with the most sophisticated techniques, as applied by the Barossa's most accomplished team of Shiraz specialists. Maximum use is made of soaking and plunging to extract intense colours and firm tannins. All parcels are treated to a separate vinification for up to a fortnight in traditional open top fermenters, before being gently pressed and transferred to a combination of new and prior use French and American oak barrels for fifteen months maturation prior to assemblage.
TASTING NOTES
Rich dark red, deep purple hue. Pepperjack displays aromas of wild berries, cherry and plums supported by spices and mocha/ dark chocolate oak. Rich round and soft with rich red berries coming through on the palate, complexed by a savoury, meaty interest. Fine tannins, lots of weight, ample complexity and great length of flavour. Drink with char grilled Scotch Fillet, green peppercorn sauce and roast root vegetable.
