2014 Jackaman's Magnum

Jackaman’s vineyard is Langmeil’s finest and rarest Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in the 1960s during the Cabernet revolution in the Barossa. This vineyard was lovingly tended by the colourful Barossan Arthur Jackaman, a World War II paratrooper, boxer and butcher who in retirement passed his small plot into Langmeil’s care.

 This is warm climate cabernet that keeps a firm grip on its varietal personality while maintaining integrity in the face of what can be, at certain times, the neutering effect of a warm climate. Crushed currant strewn with dried herbs, firm tannins and a lilting meld of dill-spiked acidity for lift, makes this wine. Ned Goodwin MW, The Wine Companion.

Wine Profile

Cabernet increased dramatically in the 1950s and ‘60s bringing with it a new vision and direction for the Barossa. From its proud fortified wine heritage, it helped inspire the Barossa’s future as a premium dry red region.

Colour: Medium to deep crimson with purple hues.

Aroma: Lifted blackcurrants and blueberry aroma entwine with biscuity French oak, minty hints and savoury, black olive notes.

Palate: Bright, juicy, blue fruits flow onto the palate which is medium to full-bodied. Briary spice, black olive and minty hints add to the complexity with a touch of oak sweetness and silky tannins to lengthen the fruity and velvety finish.

Cellaring: 2017 – 2027
