Country, Region: South Australia, Barossa Valley
From a red clay over limestone and schist vineyard in Greenock in the Barossa Valley. 100% destemmed and wild-fermented in cement tanks. Pressed and aged in cement tank on lees for 15 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright, juicy and succulent, this is a fresh and vibrant Shiraz ideal for everyday consumption.
'"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, The Wine Front, August 2019.
