2019 JC’s Own Barossa Shiraz
The JC’s Own label is the personal project of Massena winemaker Jaysen Collins with the labels inspired by street art he sees in his travels. The fruit for this wine is sourced from a single vineyard located in the Barossa Valley sub region of Greenock. Aged for 25 months in 1 year old low toast French oak barriques a portion of pressings was included to provide additional structure.
Dense pitch black colour with a very deep black dark red hue. Heady blackberry, liquorice and dark plum scents show plenty of intensity out of the glass with hints of vanillin cedar, earthy dark chocolate and spice also chiming in. Rich and concentrated yet also possessing a sense of refinement, the palate is layered with opulent blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits. Lying beneath are earthy dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spice elements. Polished tannin structure. Superb power with a long deeply fruited yet focused aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
