Arakoon is the aboriginal name of a forest that was known to the indigenous people for it's proximity to water. Jones & Son are upfront about their penchant for Burgundy but what they do is completely McLaren Vale. They collate hand chosen parcels of Shiraz from good growers in the Sellicks Beach and Willunga districts, grapes are painstakingly handled and sorted. Foot crushing, boots on, is the practice, and for the most part all wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Parcels are inoculated and vinified in traditional open vats, treated to an extended maceration and gentle transfer through a hand operated basket press before maturation in a combination of French and American oaks.
 
Deep red colour. Aromas of chocolate and plum, lifted baking spice, mullberry and ground black pepper. An array of black berry and cherry flavours kept vital by bright morello acidity. Seamless integration between good fruit, velvet tannins and fine oak, a smoky depth and lick of vanilla spice linger right through to the savoury finish.
