Dutschke Jackson St Jakobi Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz

Shiraz master Wayne Dutschke proved his skill with varietal cabernet under his ‘Sami’ label in recent times, but for years this has been his secret weapon in subtly tweaking shiraz. We have awaited his first cabernet shiraz in trembling, child-like anticipation. It has landed at last, and, boy oh boy, does it meet expectation. The colour is profound, an impenetrable black with a vibrant purple rim. Then a primary, alluring, dense concentration that captures both cabernet and shiraz personality in violets, blackcurrants, cassis and plums, meshing seamlessly with dark chocolate and coffee oak and supple, fine tannins. With signature Dutschke craftsmanship, sumptuous density meets pristine, lifted fruit character and layer after layer of enticing allure. Jackson, you’ve just outdone Sami! Be quick – 270 dozen won’t last long.
