Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz is the first of its kind to undergo a unique aged scotch whiskey barrel finish. The outcome? Additional layers of complexity and smoothness, which combine beautifully with the rich plum, sweet red fruit and dark chocolate notes of Barossa Shiraz.

Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz is a full-bodied wine that offers bold, smoky flavours with an elegant finish, and pairs beautifully with meat-focused, bold BBQ dishes AND this carpaccio

Pair your gift of Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz with an equally delicious and bold dish, recipe courtesy of Vancouver’s-own Chef Dan Tigchelaar from The Bottleneck restaurant:

1 cup Aioli or store bought mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Truffle paste

For Garnishing Final Product
1 cup of croutons
¼ cup chiffonade Italian parsley
Pinch of smoked salt

Method:

  • Toast spices for the carpaccio and then coarsely grind
  • Roll Bison eye of round in the ground spice mix until completely covered
  • Season with salt and sear the outside of the eye of round in a very hot pan
