VINEYARDS: The grapes were grown mainly in vineyards surrounding Paarl, a region with a Rhf4nelike climate that is ideal for Shiraz cultivation. Soils are predominantly eroded shale and loam on top of decomposed clay and vines range in age from 8 to 15 years. Grapes are situated on slopes that receive north or northwest exposure which is slightly warmer allowing for dark berry flavors and a fuller bodied style. VINTAGE: The 2016 vintage was challenging with little rainfall and very hot temperature averages both during the day and in the evening. Canopy management was instrumental in preventing sunburn of the berries, delivering wines of quality. VINIFICATION AND MATURATION: The grapes were handpicked and de-stemmed. They were cold macerated for two days before undergoing natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks, using only indigenous yeasts. Continuous pumpovers were performed during fermentation. When the sugar level reached 5b0B, the wine was pressed and returned to tank for malolactic fermentation. It was aged on its fine lees, with 20% of the wine aged in a combination of French and American oak for approximately six months. TASTING NOTES: More fun than your typical Shiraz, this fresh, fruity, semi-sweet wine displays aromas and flavors of ripe blueberries, blackberries and raspberries with dark chocolate undertones. Refreshing and approachable with the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity, it makes a great aperitif and pairs equally well with both savory and sweet foods. Best served slightly chilled.
Jam Jar was born out of the realization that there are not a lot of options available to consumers seeking quality sweet wine. The fresh, fruity Moscato and Sweet Shiraz aim to fill that void. Refreshing and approachable with a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity, Jam Jar Wines are sweet perfection.
