The processing of wine begins with the harvesting of the fruit which may be either by hand or alternatively by machine. At Jane Brook the fruit is harvested entirely by hand during the coolest time of the day and then cooled in our refrigerated winery. This ensures that our fruit is in undamaged, excellent condition before crushing. During the ripening period mid January - March, maturity analyses of Baume`, pH and Titratable Acid are performed to plot the progress of the fruit. The level of ripeness is determined by hydrometer or refractrometer, which measures the total soluble solids. In grape juice this is essentially all sugar, and this is then expressed in Brix or Be`. 1 Be` = 1.8 Brix, 1 be` equates to approximately 1% v/v of alcohol, hence fruit harvested at 12 Be` or 21.6 Brix produces a wine of approximately 12% v/v of alcohol. The fermentation process involves the yeast converting grape sugar to ethanol. All wine is fermented within stainless steel tanks with the exception of Chardonnay Read more »

  • Jane Brook Estate Wines White Port NV


    This is a wonderfully light fortified wine. Best served in a port glass with one block of ice and a slice of lemon. A fantastic Summer afternoon drink. Read More

  • Jane Brook Estate Wines Back Block Shiraz NV


    A great wine from old vines, very deep shiraz. Dry mouth feel, strong berries and pepper flavours. The current vintage is very close to running out at the cellar door. Read More
