As modern pioneers, Jackson Estate has been in the business for over 25 years, quietly getting on with hand crafting beautiful wines with elegance, finesse and longevity.
With total respect for the land and focusing on low cropping levels, small batch fermentation, single vineyard fruits and minimal winemaking intervention, they continue to achieve incremental improvements year on year, in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way.
They remain 100 percent kiwi-owned and are staying put on thei perfectly balanced soils, growing their beautifully mature vines in the incredible Marlborough climate.
Intense aromas of red and black fruits coupled with a base note of dried herbs, spice and cedar. The flavour profile is a combination of savory and spice, with rich and ripe flavours. Elegant and silky tannins give good texture and concentration.
A fabulous accompaniment to a mushroom risotto.
The grapes are handpicked from their oldest vines in their unirrigated, claybound Somerset and Gum Emperor vineyard blocks in Marlborough's southern valleys. Matured for ten months in 100% French oak barriques.
