Cellar’s Choice: Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz


There’s a reason why Australia is known as the new world.

Motivated by a desire to push the boundaries of innovative wine-making, Jacob’s Creek has crafted a totally unique product with Double Barrel.

The Shiraz is made from fruit sourced from Barossa, one of Australia’s most renowned grape-growing regions.

Aged in traditional French and American oak and then rested for up to three months in barrels that previously housed Scotch Whisky. To achieve a balanced product of incredible depth and complexity, Jacob’s Creek’s winemakers experimented  with many different casks before deciding on Scotch Whisky barrels. They found that it offered the perfect finishing touch to the ripe red fruit and peppery spice of Barossa Shiraz.

The result is a premium wine with a velvety mouth-feel, seamlessly integrated tannins and a lavish palate of dark fruits and chocolate kissed by toasty oak.

Tasting Notes

Double Barrel Shiraz has a full and generous palate with a beguiling mix of sweet red fruits and dark chocolate indicative of its origins as Barossa Shiraz. Subtle toasty vanilla derives from aging in traditional French and American oak wine barrels.
