Jones Road JR Jones Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This little junior Jones is quite possibly the best value wine in the range. It has lots of red berries and cherries on the nose, together with soft spices and a touch of earthiness. The palate is medium-bodied and quite fruity, with a plummy centre, mellow tannins, and a good, dry, cherry-like finish. It has the softness to compliment spicy dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Another rock solid Jr. Jones Pinot Noir that follows in the same veinbas the ‘10 - a real showcase of just why Mornington Peninsula pinot noir is so darn good. Trademark dark garnet colour and smells of ripe wild red and dark cherries, toasted spices and forest berries – really youthful, fresh and concentrated. The palate is smooth and supple with plenty of flesh, velvety tannins and long dark cherry flavour.

Jr. Jones are good honest wines made expressly to showcase the premium cool-climate fruit of the Mornington Peninsula, Australia.

Good clarity and hue; the bouquet is closed, and the palate distinctly firm early in its life, with hard-edged red fruit flavours; needs to loosen up.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
A tangy, stemmy edge to light- to medium-bodied red fruits; good balance and length; well-priced.
