2015 JPB Limited Release Shiraz
We named this wine after our founder Giovanni (John) Patritti, one of the earliest Italians to settle in South Australia in 1925. The label design is reminiscent of the earliest Patritti labels and features the original JPB logo. Trading as 'John Patritti Brighton' referring to the greater region of Adelaide where the winery is located, the demand for his wines steadily grew. Today, the original JPB branding iron is still used to stamp barrels and grandson, James Mungall, makes the wines that are enjoyed around the world.
The nose is bold with blackcurrant and fresh plums interlaced with coffee, cedar and earthy notes. The palate is voluptuous with blackberries, rich satsuma plum, smoke and a hint of spice balanced by rounded, mouth-watering tannins, and fine cedar oak. Elegant acids add to the structure to deliver a long, lingering finish.
