Quantity:

The Bluebird Grenache is a lighter fresher style of Grenache… instead of plums and black currants it is a celebration of red fruit – raspberries and cherries, maybe some red plum too. A medium style Grenache which already has a quite open and fragrant nose. The palate is silky and smooth dusted with fine tannins and a touch of spice. Length is long and generous, everything perfectly in place and ready for immediate consumption.


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 (2018 Vintage)
"I always get mesmerised when I see a flock of birds floating and drifting in the wind. It brings a sense of freedom and joy to me. I knew the bluebird is the symbol of happiness so I had a concept for the label – I just needed the wine!

So with this idea floating about in my head, I set out to make a great drink that brings a true sense of delight. I found an east facing vineyard in the shallow soils of the Adelaide hills that just gets the morning sun – no baked flavours here. I got rid of the stalks and just fermented this as whole berries.

Just before coffee in the morning and after a cold beer in the afternoon I quickly give it a plunge by hand, nothing too serious or strenuous. It’s bottled early to catch the brightness I’m looking for, meaning it’s dangerously drinkable whenever you need a pick me up."
