2016 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.
Aromatically the wine is layered and deep, blue and black fruits, raspberries, plum with slate, coffee mocha and oak toast adding complexity. In the mouth the wine shows power and intensity but maintains an elegant line, a calling card of Blewitt Springs. The flavours, tannin and structure of the wine are all finely balanced to allow for long term cellaring or simply enjoy the power now.
Drink now or cellar for 20+ years.
