2019 J6 Jimmy’s Block
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.
The bouquet is complex with lifted floral, anise and blueberry fruit. The palate is delicious, well rounded, fruity with a soft plush finish.
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.
Great with antipasto and pasta dishes as well as pizza, or just on its own.
Chill it slightly and enjoy the moment.
