About the Wine

To make a tribute wine is a daunting thing. The wine should encapsulate all that was loved and reverred in the name-sake. It should be personal and unique. It should have true character. It should be made with respect and deference. All of these things are to be found in The Lane Vineyards JC Shiraz Cabernet.

Named in honour of the late Jack Crighton, father of John, the man who established The Lane's formidable reputation, this wine has the gravitas so needed in such a wine. A top cuveè blend of their best old vine material off the Estate, the 2009 is just starting to show its true colour. It was called "A convincing tribute" by James Halliday in his 96 point review and sits comfortably amongst most the most respected wines in South Australia.

This is a wine built for special occasions, big glasses, and a fine meal. A thing of rare beauty. Enjoy.

About The Lane Vineyard

The Lane are forging a reputation as one of the Adelaide Hills' premier producers, and are all about quality and authenticity with every single berry grown on site at their own vineyard. Their philosophy is to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their vineyard.

Chardonnay and Shiraz are what the Edwards family do best, but Bordeaux varieties - red and white - perform strongly also.  With a gorgeous cellar door and restaurant The Lane is well worth a visit, and with their ever-improving range of premium wines they are truly a star Hills producer.

"Medium red-purple; combines elegance with length, harmony, intense red and black fruits, and fine spicy/savoury tannins. A convincing tribute, and is fairly priced." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

JC is a tribute wine to John’s father Jack and is the premium red wine of our estate. It is also The Lane’s take on Australia’s premier red wine blend Shiraz Cabernet and the much revered Penfolds Grange which is also a blend of both varieties.

Like all Grand Cru wine JC is a single vineyard wine with every berry grown and made at The Lane, this wine has a real sense of place. JC is a selection of the very best barrels of Shiraz and Cabernet grown in that vintage from our oldest vines, fermented naturally with no additions and aged in the finest new French oak for 18 to 20 months before the blend is put together.

The wine has enormous power, beautiful fruit, structure and mouthfeel while maintaining an elegance that is the hallmark of The Lane Vineyard. Enjoy now or age for up to twenty years.
