Grenache from Barossa, South Australia, Australia

Closure: Cork
A rich brooding incarnation that borders stay just on the right side of being too heavy. The quality of the tannins is epic, the flavours intense and generous. A great comparison to Jaysen Blue Bird Grenache from the Adelaide Hills!


The Blue Bird from the Hills is a perfumed elegant Grenache vs the bold Grenache from vines planted in the 1850’s!

The regional difference offer up thick skins full of tannin that Jaysen whole-berry ferments from the Adelaide Hills.

The Barossa Grenache has thin skins and whole bunches are used to help build structure with the addition of stalk tannins.

The depth, layering and evenness of Tannin from the incredibly old vine Barossa Grenache is epic. The Adelaide Hills tannins are more playful and lively. It comes down to stylistic preference.

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Funny when you meet someone and there’s kind of an instant gel. Jaysen Collins is one of those people. He’s making some tasty vino. Pushing to do the things we love at Wine Decoded. If you’ve experienced the parts of the Wine Decoded Tasting Revolution that we’ve published so far you’ll know we love wines with great Depth & Length, Balance & Complexity, Freshness & Development & Texture & Personality. Jaysen is achieving all of these things. Doing that in the Barossa takes deep thought and a significant amount of experience. Get it wrong and you end up with flat, alcoholic, boring wine.

With a splash of Adelaide Hills fruit coming into play he’s making a tasty range of wines under the Massena and JC’s Own labels. We spent an hour with him talking all things vino. Next time we’re doing it over dinner and drinking not tasting! Check out the videos, podcasts and of course the wines below.

This is a great opportunity to drink wines in Context & with Contrast. Pair up the Grenache, GSMs and Shiraz just as we did in the films 🎥 below!

About Massena & JC’s Own

Like so many in the industry Jaysen caught the wine bug by osmosis. Growing up in the Barossa it was inevitable that he’d be exposed to grapes and the odd glass of red. One thing led to another, and during vintage in the Clare with Dan Standish they hatched a plan to buy some Grenache and start making their own wine under the Massena label.

Years later Jaysen started JC’s Own, an outlet for him to push the boundaries, experiment with ideas gleaned from disruptive influences working vintages overseas and observing the wine world.

Undoubtedly part of the more recent wave of Barossa producer evolving styles focusing on freshness, élévage and texture in wine. He’s extended his reach to the Adelaide Hills making wines that show a wonderful contrast to the Barossa versions.
