The best way to describe this Angaston Grenache is powerful yet elegant. Jaysen really has this whole Grenache thing under wraps. The wine oozes red berries, dark fruits, a sprinkle of spice and a dusting of tannin. A richer style for Jaysen but still well balanced and not overt. The wine is super gluggable and down right delicious!


About JC's Own (Jaysen Collins)
"I’ve been making wine for twenty years now, mostly in the Barossa, most recently in the USA but I do it because it’s a hell of a lot of fun for me and I get a lot out of the process. My enjoyment stems from being outdoors, the physical work and getting dirty, the science with a bit of guesswork and the chance to drink many amazing wines in the name of research. They call it a lifestyle industry and i’m all in on this.

Through all this and getting older and apparently more wise, I’ve come to realise that wine is about what you want it to be. For me there’s a time for fun, enjoyment and adventure. There’s also the realisation that some special vineyards just need to be bottled without mucking about too much. So you’ll see that in my JC’s Own wines – some adventurously different wines in style and packaging and limited releases that pay respect to distinguished single sites around the world.

I’ve also got a great young family and as such living sustainably sits high in our household. We live day to day with respect to our environment and I bring this to my wines, in as much as I can control. I seek grapes from sustainable vineyards, I’m minimalistic in my winemaking where using natural yeasts, low sulphurs and no fining and filtration also sit well within this philosophy. In short, these are pure wines that fuel my enjoyment and it’s awesome I can share this with you."


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"150 year old bush vine Barossa grenache vineyards are a rare treat. Walking amongst the old bush vines gives me such a wonderment of what has transpired in the years gone by to get to this moment in time. It’s like I am breathing the air of times past – it can be truly something quite moving and somewhat magical.

I’ve been working with Barossa grenache since my first vintage and whilst versatile, it can easily become overly sweet and some people can even call it lolly water. But not this special site – no way josé. It gets cool air draining from the Eden Valley across the red sands, so I've found it leans more toward complexity and structure, which is what pushes my buttons.

How do I treat such a special site – pretty simply is the answer. 100% whole bunches get a foot treading over several weeks, I press it to large oak barrels and bottle it unfined and unfiltered.

That means when I taste this wine I’m still caught up in the magic from the vineyard that has transpired for well over a century. I’ll wipe the tear from my eye as I have another glass."


94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Fancy bottle. 100% whole bunches from a vineyard planted over 150 years ago. Spicy, malty, blackberry and raspberry, fresh mint and sage, new leather. Texture is very good here, with a suede-like feel and density to tannin, red and black berries, a chocolate richness, rosy mouth-perfume, choc-cherry in the aftertaste. Comes over almost like a bold Beaujolais, though that’s only meant as an aside, rather than definition. Compelling wine. So nicely done."
