The JCs Own Originale Grenache 2016 offers intriguing aromatics from the 100% whole bunch ferment. Exotic amaro notes and black cherry, with some savoury notes and high end spices. The palate is structured and fruit driven with supporting grainy tannins. Flavours are on the cherry and savoury, spice spectrum that premium Barossa grenache is known for. The palate really expands with a decant if enjoying young.

"Massena is one of my favourite Barossa producers, hands down. And they do well in reviews! Here you go. Scintillating riesling that layers in detail, texture, freshness and interest. Far from cookie-cutter versions of the variety you get pot pourri,golden delicious apple, citrus notes, mineral whiffs mirrored in palate and bouquet. Sounds familiar, but it’s that flint and slate texture, an extra succulence, the faintest savouriness that elevates here."
