About This Wine

Certain wineries are synonymous with certain wine regions.

In the Padthaway region of Australia, the first winery most people think of when it comes to top-quality bottlings is Jip Jip Rocks. Padthaway is an elongated strip of land in the Limestone Coast zone of South Australia, and Jip Jip Rocks has earned more than 80 medals in prestigious international wine competitions and Aussie wine shows in recent years.

The Jip Jip Rocks vineyards are planted on their own rootstock in some of the world’s oldest mineral-rich soils. The temperate maritime climate also contributes to grape quality, and that quality can be tasted in the Jip Jip Rocks wines.

The attention to detail doesn’t stop in the vineyard, however. It extends to the cellar, where careful selection of oak barrels helps create amazingly complex wines like the 2009 Shiraz-Cabernet. This proprietary blend, expertly crafted by Ben Riggs, is fruitful, spicy and food-friendly — the liquid essence of Padthaway.

The outstanding 2009 Shiraz/Cabernet boasts a deep purple color in addition to super-ripe mulberry and boysenberry fruit interwoven hints of cedar box, pepper, and underbrush. An opulent, voluptuously textured red with beautiful density and purity as well as a succulent style, it should drink nicely for 4-5 years.
