The Lane John Crighton (JC) Shiraz Cabernet 2012 has enormous power, beautiful fruit, structure and mouthfeel while maintaining an elegance that is the hallmark of The Lane Vineyard. JC is a tribute wine to Johns father Jack and is the premium red wine of the estate. It's also The Lanes take on Australias premier red wine blend shiraz cabernet and the much revered Penfolds Grange which is also a blend of both varieties.
Like all Grand Cru wines, 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.
