The Lane JC Cabernet Shiraz 2010


The Lane Vineyard JC (John Crighton) is a tribute wine to John’s father and is the premium red wine of the estate. It is The Lane’s take on Australia’s premier red wine blend Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 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 from the 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.
