“ Hearty but exuberant. Flooded with clovey, blackberried flavour. Edged with both sweetness and smoky, earthen flavour. Impressive in all respects. Full-frontal attack on the value equation. ”

Deep velvet red with purple tinges, a bouquet of ripe red fruit, warm spice and liquorice. On the palate it is big and full with hints of dark chocolate and spicy oak. A rich ripe robust shiraz style for a lover of big stylish reds.
J & J's Rivers Lane organic vineyard is situated in the heart of McLaren Vale, adjacent to the sites of the earliest vineyards established during the late 1830's. The thin limestone rich soils found here match the good winter rainfalls and the long warm days and short cool nights of a gentle dry maritime summer. The Shiraz wine that is created by this terroir is of intense flavour and deep colour with elegance, structure, power and complexity. Here at Rivers Lane the superb terroir that has made McLaren Vale internationally renowned is equalled by J & J's dedication to organic viticulture and a family tradition of excellence.
