2009 J & J Vineyards Shiraz
Vibrant red and black berries with a hint of spice and liquorice.
Full yet restrained, with superb balance between oak; red currents, wild berries, liquorice and spice. The finish is long and intense with fine fruit tannin lingering.
This wine will benefit from decanting and will age gracefully peaking on 10 years.
Sourced from the organically grown J&J family site this single vineyard shiraz met a devastating heat wave at the time of harvest in 2009. By hand harvesting and sorting , we ensured only the best fruit met the winery. This low yield and intense heat saw the resulting wine, a rich ,ripe and robust McLaren Vale style shiraz. It is a testament to the dedication of the J&J team against adversity.
