The 2017 growing season was marked as one of the earliest seasons in decades. With a very dry summer the crop was slightly smaller than in 2016, with grapes ripening a lot earlier yet with good development. Cold nights ensured excellent colouring and a relatively cool summer allowed the vines enough time to ripen optimally.

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.
