Steeple Jack Cabernet 2017 (12 x 750mL) Currency Creek, SA

Description:

Vintage 2017 was judged highly successful for both grape growers, who had above average crops with minimal faults and wine makers who had the ability to pick fruit as they required during an extended dry autumn.

Winter weather conditions help set up the early growth of vines with above average rainfall leading to full soil profiles. Spring was also significantly wetter than average.

Harvest began later than in 2016 with very few vineyards picked in February, with picking continuing into late April.

There was one significant rain event of approximately 25mm in the first week of February. Fortunately, this did not cause widespread berry splitting and Botrytis levels remained low in the aftermath.

Autumn continued to be warm and dry through early April allowing for a successful harvest.

In the days when ballast stone was an important feature of some of Australia’s most iconic buildings, the

daring Steeplejacks played a crucial role in their construction and maintenance. As skilled craftsmen, they completed the most difficult work on the highest towers, oblivious to vertigo, gravity and mortality.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

With blackcurrant, plum and tobacco leaf dominating the nose, rich and fleshy on the palate, loads of mulberry, black cherry and spice upfront, a hint of chocolate and mint, and chalky fine tannins on the finish, this is a fine cabernet.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Shaw family has over 35 years of wine industry experience as a vigneron and vintner. Their dream for family involvement inspired Richard and Marie to expand from 5 acres to over 1,200 acres to become one of the largest owners of vineyards in the premium cool climate regions of McLaren Vale and Currency Creek in South Australia.

The Shaw family vision included producing high quality wine for the enjoyment of global wine connoisseurs. In the year 2000 the construction of their ultra modern, state-of-the-art winery was completed.

The wine is produced from grapes picked from the family vineyards and is produced at the Winery located in Currency Creek. Shaw Family Vintners have a distinguished range of labels comprised of Shaw Family Vintners, Stonemason, Steeple Jack and premium brands, Single Vineyard, Emetior and RMS.
