2020 JC’s Own Greenock Shiraz Barossa Valley – Jaysen cut his winemaking teeth in the heavy red soils of the north west of the Barossa, where Greenock is the jewel of the crown in his opinion. His winery is here, the pub does a good burger and by chance there’s some pretty good Shiraz vineyards knocking about.
A few vintages ago he came across a vineyard just on the North of the Greenock township that hides behind some big gum trees. It runs down a small hill facing east, with lean soils, cooler afternoons, tiny yields, small berries – how asleep had he been to drive past this vineyard for several years? But he’s definitely alert now!
Jaysen likes Shiraz that is big on fruit intensity but is more supple and svelt on the palate, powerful yet velvety, structured but sensual – We could go on but i think we’ve conveyed his point.
So this rare single site treat from his part of the world and a true connection to his beginnings in making wine.
Rich, juicy, full flavoured and did we say juicy? This wine is full bodied but not over the top. Only reaching 14% alcohol there is a softness that carries the fruit in a clean, seamless manner. Big on flavour but extremely well balanced. A classy Barossa Shiraz of power and elegance.
