Variety: Grenache, Cinsault, Shiraz, Mataro
Country, Region: South Australia, Barossa Valley
Grenache based blend co-fermented with Cinsault, Shiraz and Mataro. Bright perfumed whole bunch goodness lifting the aromas and giving freshness and lift to the palate also. A classic southern Rhone blend with tremendous perfume, finesse and complexity and so gulpable. Generous and full flavoured yet not heavy. This has all the finesse the French would be proud of. Another absolute winner.
“‘The JC’s Own’ is Jaysen Collins’ ‘project wines’ that stem from his very good work at the bloody good Massena winery in the Barossa Valley. I guess here, JC’s Own allows him some additional flexibility in winemaking style. Satisfying his own interests, so to speak. The aesthetic of the labelling and broad, round-shouldered bottle already suggest something about eclectic style, edginess.” Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au, August 2019
