Holding its colour well; still enjoying life greatly, with fragrant flowery/berry aromas on the bouquet, the palate with excellent balance and length; once again, cassis does most of the talking, but fine-grained tannins and cedary oak lift and lengthen the finish. Well balanced and attractive now, don’t be tempted to go past ’20 without checking its progress.
95 Points, James Halliday, Wine Companion
Made up primarily of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the cool climate volcanic soils of Orange, this wine is complemented by a small portion of Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine nuances of black currant flavours with good up front palate intensity and a lingering soft tannin finish. Merlot rounds out the mid palate and contributes rich berry flavours while the Cabernet Franc contributes a lightly lifted floral note, sweet spice and intensity to the mid palate.
What’s in a name:
Jezza is what my nephews dubbed me when they were at boarding school in Orange. They spent most of their weekends with us and this period is filled with good memories so I thought it appropriate to call my Signature red wine Jezza.
