On the nose there are rich, ripe red fruits, spice and some interesting earthy notes. The palate is bold, rich and complex offering layers of dark berries, spice and plum combined with well structured tannin and oak to leave a lingering finish.
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.
