J & J Rivers Lane Premium Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Rich and sumptuous sums this wine up pretty well. Aromas of choc-coated dark berries and cherries adorn the nose, together with licks of toastiness. The palate is full-bodied and fruity, with tastes of mocha and ripe plums, fine, friendly tannins, and a dry, savoury-edged finish. It's lovely stuff that should cellar well over the next 5-years or so.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is produced in small batches and only when the vintages are favourable to producing the highest quality. Fortunately this inaugural release was aided by the best vintage in over a decade and is a true reflection of the passion, complexity and terroir that J&J Wines represent.

Appearance: Rich, vibrant velvet.

Nose: Brilliant complexity and balance between integrated oak and ripe fleshy dark fruits, liquorice and smooth dark chocolate.

Palate: Full bodied and silky smooth the mouth is coated with layers of rich flavour that enrich the senses and linger revealing superb balance and complexity.

Food: Premium eye fillet with creamy mash and a thick garlic sauce topped with king prawns and greens on the side.
