$25.00

Food Matches

Great with antipasto and pasta dishes as well as pizza, or just on its own.

Description

The J6 range of wines has been created by the 6th Generation of the Jones family who have owned and operated Jones Winery & Vineyard for over 90 years. They are millennial ‘style-twists’ of the traditional, estate grown varieties.

Tasting Notes

The bouquet is complex with lifted floral, anise and blueberry fruit. The palate is delicious, well rounded, fruity with a soft plush finish.

Winemaking Notes

Made from grapes grown in our 50-year-old vineyard. Mostly Shiraz, there is also some Muscat of Hamburg and a smattering of Chasselas, Sultana and Muscat Gordo Blanc. The grapes were harvested on 26th February 2019, destemmed and then fermented all together in open vats with hand-plunging.  The fermentation time was short, and the temperature was cool.  Malolactic fermentation and maturation in tank. The wine was matured for 8 months in oak barrels and then fined with egg white prior to bottling.
