The 2019 harvest season kicked off a little later than normal. There was a delayed start to winter with good rainfall following a drier than normal post-harvest period in autumn. Despite the good rainfall, warmer than normal temperatures— especially a number of hot days in July— initially led to low cold unit accumulation which in turn contributed to early and uneven bud break in some vineyards. The grapes were small with dense bunches delivering sweet and concentrated juice.

The Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz grapes were handpicked and de-stemmed. They were cold macerated for two days before undergoing natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks, using only indigenous yeasts. It was aged on its lees, with 20% of the wine aged in a combination of French and American oak for two months.
