Limited Release

The Double Barrel range is crafted from superior quality grapes which are first matured in traditional wine barrels. Then, using a unique Double Barrel technique, they are finished in aged whisk(e)y barrels to build additional layers of complexity.

However, this Double Barrel Shiraz is a limited release and more premium wine having taken some of the best Barossa fruit and ageing the wine in VSOP Cognac barrels enhance the spiced fruit characters, smooths the wine ever further and deepens the flavour.

The result is a marvellously integrated wine, still undeniably Barossa Shiraz, but with that little extra kick. Great for richer dishes (like those you’ll be enjoying this holiday season) with great potential for cellaring if you can keep your hands off them! 

Deep crimson with a bright purple hue. Complex cinnamon, roasted nuts and fruit cake aromas with dense, blackberry fruit and cedar overtones. Ripe plum with attractive dark cherry complemented by added spiced fruit character from cognac barrels.

A richer and more complex addition to the Double Barrel family, this unique, limited release showcases Australian Shiraz fruit and Jacob’s Creek innovative double-barrel technique.

Premium red wine, matured first in traditionally toasted French oak wine barrels, and then finished in aged VSOP cognac barrels. This technique imparts additional layers of complexity, beautifully integrated tannins, and an incredibly smooth, deep, rich mouth-feel.
