Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz
Morambro Creek
Australia - South Australia - Padthaway

Jip Jip Rocks wine is synonymous with premium wines from South Australia’s Padthaway wine region. The vineyard is planted in some of the world’s oldest mineral rich soils and in the most temperate of maritime climates. The Jip Jip Rocks vineyard consistently produces excellent fruit quality from low yielding vines.

Only the best parcels of fruit are carefully selected throughout the vineyard and utilized in the Jip Jip Rocks label. Great attention to detail with the integration of fruit flavors and fine oak barrels helps produce classic handcrafted wine styles.

Lifted spice and ripe mulberry/blackberry aromas are complimented with chocolate, cedar and cinnamon on the nose. Well-integrated oak tannin provides flavors of clove and supple texture, which supports the rich plum, blackberry and mocha. The overall structure is supple and generous with fine-grained tannin and a lingering finish.

Fermentation took place over 10 – 12 days in a combination of open and static fermenters. The temperature was closely monitored to ensure the wine retains its natural fruit expression.

These parcels were put together from our family estate to best demonstrate the depth and character of our fruit, balanced by integrated oak.

halliday logo"Substantial amount of blackberried flavour, served warm and soft, and yet balance seems too to have been a key consideration. This is well turned out. Gum leaf and toasty oak characters round out a high value, and highly drinkable, offering. - James Halliday"

wa91"Plump, round and appealing, the 2016 Shiraz offers loads of boysenberry and mint. It's full-bodied and supple, offering plenty of early-drinking pleasure. There's no guarantee it will be long-lived, but it's delicious now. - Joe Czerwinski"

tanzer iwc 88 pts"Deep ruby. Ripe dark berry and cherry compote aromas convey a vaguely jammy aspect and notes of woodsmoke and candied licorice. Round and expansive on the palate, offering plump blackberry and plum flavors that are sweetened by suggestions of vanilla and mocha. Betrays no tannins on the finish, which lingers with good breadth and persistence and an echo of blackberry preserves. - Josh Raynolds"

Wine Advocate 89 Pts"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Shiraz gives pronounced notes of warm blackcurrant, crushed blueberries and black pepper with hints of tar, mocha and loam. Medium to full bodied, it fills the mouth with peppered black berry flavors supported by a medium level of rounded tannins, lively acid and finishing long. Drinking now, it should remain good to 2015.- LPB"
