BACKGROUND

The fruit for the Jaraman range is sourced from two celebrated Australian wine regions (Coonawarra & Clare Valley). The winemakers ensure that the distinct regional characteristics are preserved and enhanced with the fruit as the star and any winemaking influence the supporting act. The word Jaraman derives from an Aboriginal term for ‘seahorse’ that is found within a number of Australian Aboriginal languages and dialect groups. The significance of the seahorse icon dates back to the early days in Taylors Wine history when, whilst digging the first dam on the property, the family unearthed tiny fossilised seahorses.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Clare Valley - Taylors estate - 350m above sea level with moderate temperatures on terra rossa soils. Growers - slightly higher altitude but similar temperature conditions for Cabernet vineyards. Coonawarra - Cooler continental area of South Australia with a lower altitude over terra rossa soil.
Hotter vintage with faster ripening conditions. Very little disease pressure. Slightly lower yields and great concentration of flavor.

WINEMAKING

After primary fermentation was completed extended skin was done for 10 days to increase tannin and color. During this period, malolactic fermentaion was completed. After pressing the wine was put into 50% new French oak.

TASTING NOTES

There are lifted aromas of dark cherry fruit along with subtle choc-mint and a hint of eucalypt. On the palate, this is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavors of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated, elegant tannins providing structure and an intense, persistent length to the finish.
