Lovely Jean-Baptist Cordises, the Frenchman who found himself after stints in Savoie, Jura and even making sake with the masters in Japan, sitting pretty in his Adelaide Hills home. This blend is 80% Merlot topped up with 20% Semillon from his friend Jeff's organically farmed vineyard in Vine Vale, east of the Barossa. It’s a pirate’s blend for thee, meant to be sloshed into tumblers, clinked roughly with loud friends. Joyful fruit, dazzling acidity, pure fun, just like JB. Lovers of Lucy Margaux will like to sit with this one.
