'The Jackman' Trial Bin 5850 South Australia Dry Red Blend No 3 N.V.
Region: South Australia
Winemakers like Benjamin Parker love making wines as that is what they do. This is the third Dry Red made from an interesting purchase of nine months ago.
In large wineries there are dozens of stainless tanks and leading from them are multiple hoses and pipes connecting them with other tanks and barrels and things can go wrong as wine is transferred from one to another.
The Jackman was created when two wines were blended which should not have been as they were different vintages. We did not ask many questions but just focussed on the opportunity although we added other wines back at the Glug winery. The wine is not only a blend of vintages but became a blend of varieties though Cabernet shines through. It is though 100% from South Australia and mostly premium, high quality regions.
Wines like this are too hard to sell in the conventional world of shop retail but are ideal for the smart Glug customer.
