Pepperjack Red Blend 2013
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Pepperjack, from the Barossa Valley of South Australia, comes from the cellars of Saltram Wine Estates, which was established in 1859. Pepperjack Barossa Red is a delicious blend of 78% Shiraz, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon with 11% combined of Merlot, Malbec and Grenache, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo. Aged 12 months in French and American oak, this has lush aromas of oak, fresh berries, plums and vanilla. Velvety tannins give it a rounded, balanced structure and a satisfying finish. The range of varietals in this blend allows an assortment of food-friendly matchups — grilled meats, roasted vegetables, risottos, casseroles, stews, quiche, pasta sauces, even pizza and burgers.
Pepperjack’s parent winery, Saltram Wine Estates, is one of Australia’s most famous, producing grapes and wine in the Barossa Valley since 1859. The Barossa Valley, located about 35 miles northeast of the city of Adelaide, is Australia’s oldest wine region, settled in the 1840s by German immigrants fleeing persecution in Prussian province of Silesia (modern-day Poland). The Aussies’ signature grape Shiraz thrives in the hot, continental climate; the oldest vineyards were planted in 1847 and are still producing today.
