Besides their signature fun and colorful blends, the JJ guys also recently started to make more serious single-vineyard wines from the most interesting sites they discovered, such as this yum Grenache from 80-year-old bush vines in the South. As Xavier says: “A great family-run vineyard that we have started this new relationship with. A pretty warm maritime climate that’s perfect for organic farming, as they don’t get a lot of rain. Very exciting!”

Grapes: Grenache

Vineyard: old bush vines with low yields planted in the 1940s on sandy soils. Dry farmed, practicing organics. Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale, South Australia

Making of: 25% of the grapes kept as whole bunches, the rest as de-stemmed berries over the top. Two-week maceration with gentle daily pump-overs before pressing into old barrique for 10 months elevage. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, with a small amount of SO2.

Personality: light and crunchy while also nicely layered, with delicate notes of herbs and ripe dark fruit – cool balance between drinkability and seriousness! Give it a nice chill and drink quickly if you want to tickle its juicy carbonic side, or keep for a while if you want to see the old-vine concentration evolve.
