Fable Mountain Vineyards Jackal Bird 2013

By , 9 February 2015





Fable Mountain Vineyards Jackal Bird 2013 was nominated for 5 Stars in the current edition of Platter’s but I think it’s off the pace set by previous vintages. A blend of 41% Chenin Blanc, 18% Grenache Blanc, 17% Chardonnay, 13% Viognier and 11% Roussanne, it shows peach, cut apple, spice and a little earthiness. The palate is rich and broad with moderate acidity, very flavourful but not as tight as it could be. Approximate retail price: R175

Score: 90/100.

    Unfortunately also not aging that well. Good palate but the fruit is not well integrated. Currently consuming same.
