I STARTED THIS JC’S OWN PROJECT IN 2015 WITH THIS WINE. I STARTED MAKING WINE BASED ON A LOVE OF GRENACHE BUT HAD MOVED AWAY FROM THIS IN THE WINES I WAS MAKING. I WAS TRYING SAPERAVI, TANNAT, PRIMITIVO, BARBERA - THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.

THE GRIND OF MAKING WINE TO A STYLE AND A MARKET HAD SLOWLY WORN DOWN MY PASSION FOR THE INDUSTRY. SO I KICKED MYSELF IN THE BUM AND SET OUT TO MAKE A WINE JUST FOR ME - HENCE THE JC’S OWN.

I LIKE GRENACHE THAT IS A BIT FUNKY, GASSY AND REDUCTIVE, A BIT MORE ALONG THE LINE OF VILLAGE BEAUJOLAIS. SO I PICKED A VINEYARD I’D BEEN USING A BIT EARLIER, WENT WITH 100% OF THE BUNCHES AND JUST STARTED FOOT TREADING IT SO SEE WHERE IT WOULD END UP.

I’D SEEN SOME STREET ARTWORK IN MY TRAVELS IN SPAIN, GOT A FRIEND TO KNOCK UP A LABEL BASED MY RECOLLECTION, SO FOR ME THIS WAS A BIT ORIGINAL (OR ORIGINALE FOR THE IBERIAN CONNECTION) IN ITS CONCEPT.
