Jip Jip Rocks – as fiercely independent as we are remote
Jip Jip Rocks wine is synonymous with premium wines from South Australia’s Limestone Coast wine region being awarded a gold medal in the prestigious 2005 London International Wine Challenge recently.
The Bryson family have been involved in agriculture for five generation and 150 years in South Australia, have long recognised the potential of Limestone Coast’s maritime climate to produce premium quality grapes. In the early 90’s the family established the Jip Jip Rocks vineyard and have concentrated on growing premium varieties of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The vineyard consistently produces excellent fruit quality from low yielding vines.
Only the best parcels of fruit are carefully selected throughout the vineyard and utilized in the Jip Jip Rocks label. Great attention to detail with the integration of fruit flavours and fine oak barrels helps produce classic handcrafted wine styles.

Youthful varietal style that makes a serious statement about the region of Padthaway. Showing its colours nicely, pale straw and lemon in colour, there is richness on the lifted nose. Long and generous in flavour, there is a persistence of peach and stone fruit harmonious with its silky mouthfeel. A very pleasant friendly style with loads of flavour.
