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!
Late last year we introduced you to the wonderful world of Nero. And it went bang! In just three short months, we sold out of all our precious stock and left our customers wanting more...
We have answered your call!
A series of Italian varieties grown in the heart of McLaren Vale, this beauty is unique before you even crack the top (Beauty refers to the wine and/or the lady on the label. Your choice).
With drinkability as the benchmark, the Nero get's a 10/10 from us.
A blend of Nero d’Avola, Touriga, Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Sagrantino. A savoury European styled wine. Medium bodied with a touch of dry tannins but countering sweetness from the fruit.
Clean and crisp but alluring and very drinkable in its youth.View full product details
