2018 - The Year of The Dog - The Year of Jim Jim 

 

Hong Kong loves dogs. Wine Brothers loves dogs. Not to mention we are always on the lookout for something a little bit quirky, which is why we here at Wine Brothers couldn't believe our luck when one of our favourite winemakers told us he had dedicated an entire brand to his beloved dog. Jim Jim was Hugh’s faithful Labrador / Kelpie at Hugh Hamilton’s estate in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Every vintage Jim Jim would eat Shiraz grapes only when they were ripe for the picking, so with viticultural skills like that, Hugh decided Jim Jim deserved his own brand. Jim Jim went to the big kennel in the sky in November 2010 but his talent is remembered in his wines. Woof woof!

 

"This Shiraz was sourced from various vineyards, including the sought after region of McLaren Vale. Individual parcels were picked at optimum ripeness and matured separately prior to blending in March 2017. By fermenting and maturing the parcels separately, we retained the best characters of each batch, allowing us to blend them and make the most of each individualistic style."
