2016 Patina ‘Jezza’

RRP: $65.00

MEMBER: $48.75

Tasting Note

Finally! This succeeds the 2008 Jezza and is the first Cabernet Merlot since then to meet the standard of my Signature red blend. This Bordeaux style blend is 75% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petite Verdot. You don’t need to be in a hurry with this wine as it will age incredibly well. However it is drinking very well now and if you have a weak moment don’t worry as it’s release is just around the corner so you can order some replacements.

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.

93 POINTS,
 “There is a lovely composure and balance to this wine with supple blackcurrant and blueberry fruits which travel the length of the palate. There are also hints of crushed leaf and spice. The oak is beautifully well integrated, and the tannins are ripe and papery. A wine of excellent balance and harmony. Built for cellaring.” The Real Review, Toni Paterson MW

Acclaim:

95 POINTS The wine is full-bodied, rich and soft in the mouth, showing good concentration, charm, a fruit-sweet centre and detailed flavour. Red fruits predominate. Some tobacco, but there is no green leafiness per se. Delicious concentration, sumptuous multi-faceted flavour and oodles of charm.
