2016 Jump Ship Eden Valley Shiraz

Eden Valley

Terry’s Great Grandfather jumped from a British Naval Ship and swam through shark infested waters to reach Australia. If he hadn’t done that then our wines would not be available and so our Shiraz is simply called ‘Jump Ship’.

Tasting Notes

This wine is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley. The vines are hand pruned and the grapes hand-picked.
It has a sensational purple colour, alluring, plummy, pepper and spice aromas with just a hint of vanillin oak. It has delightful, rich, smooth flavours with a tight, grippy finish that really lingers.

Product Name

2016 Jump Ship Eden Valley Shiraz

Colour

Red

Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested, fermented then gently pressed in our traditional basket press before maturing for 18 months in a combination of new and pre-used French oak barrels.

Cellaring

This is great Shiraz which will be even greater with another 2-4 years of patience as it mellows and develops more depth and complexity.

Food Suggestion

This wine is robust enough to be a great accompaniment to all but the spiciest of food dishes. An ideal wine with stews and barbeques.

2012 Jump Ship Eden Valley Shiraz

Eden Valley

Terry’s Great Grandfather jumped from a British Naval Ship and swam through shark infested waters to reach Australia. If he hadn’t done that then our wines would not be available and so our Shiraz is simply called ‘Jump Ship’.

Tasting Notes

The ‘Jump Ship’ Shiraz is named after the family’s Great Grandfather’s way of leaving his British war ship and arriving in Australia.

Being a 2012 wine, this is a fully mature cellar release to showcase how well our Shiraz can cellar and develop.

This Shiraz is made from premium, single vineyard grapes grown in the cool climate of Eden Valley. The vines are hand pruned and the grapes are hand-picked.

The wine has an excellent developing red colour which belies its age, a complex bouquet which is starting to show some bottle age characters and a hint of sweet spices.

The palate is very smooth, rich and complex with layers of flavours, superbly balanced and ending with a tightish finish.

2012 Jump Ship Eden Valley Shiraz

Colour

Red

Wine Making

The grapes were hand harvested, fermented then gently pressed in our traditional basket press before maturing for 18 months in a combination of new and pre-used French oak barrels, with a small amount American and Hungarian oak used to add complexity to the wine.

Cellaring

This is a great Shiraz which is beautifully mature and ready to be enjoyed. However, it has the capacity to be cellared for a few more years if so desired.

Food Suggestion

This wine is matured sufficiently to be superb on its own and it will also make a great accompaniment to less spicy vegetarian or meat dishes as well as with a cheese platter.
