    Winemaker Notes

    Fully ripened Chardonnay grape from South Australia's Limestone Coast, Fleurieu Peninsula, Adelaide Hills and Riverland appellations have produced typical peach and melon characters evident in this wine. Cool fermentation in both barrel and stainless steel followed by short maturation on yeast lees has resulted in a richly flavored wine with good length, lingering flavor and fresh oakiness.

    JackaRoo, Australia
    JackaRoo wines emerge from the noble idea of honoring the famous JackaRoo, Australian cowboy, and the territories they roamed. Known for their love affair with the land, JackaRoos labored from dawn, when the Kookaburra sings, to dusk and into the starry nights. Shaded by their dusty hats, they drove herds of cattle for 1000's of miles across the ochre colored landscape of the beautiful yet rugged Austrailan outback. Reminiscent of the celebrated Jackaroo, the wine is gallant, friendly and bid in flavor. JackaRoo's label is as bold and colorful as the lands they roamed-lands rugged with beauty and dotted with wild kangaroos. The sole focus of JackaRoo wines is to provide consumers with a high quality affordable wine. Although designated South Eastern Australia, JackaRoo is currently sourced entirely from premium South Australian vineyards. These vineyards are located in world-renowned appellations, including Clare valley, the limestone Coast and Adelaide Hills. Although, the wine making team reserves the right to search for the best vineyards given each varietal and vintage, the backbone and structure of future wine will always come from top Australian vineyards. The South Australian fruit results in unmatched quality for wines in this category. The JackaRoo winery is based southeast of Adelaide. Its winemakers have identified quality oriented wine growers in South Australia's premium wine growing regions to create an exceptional wine with unmatched quality. The grapes used in creation of this wine are derived from both old and new vines grown in regions close to the ocean with moderate temperatures, bright sunny days and cool evenings for maximum flavor development and balance. The quality of the grapes is owed to the deep rich alluvial complex soils that tend to be brown and red clays, highly favorable for grape growing.

    Australia

    A large, climatically diverse country producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia is often misunderstood by consumers. It is not just a source of blockbuster Shiraz or inexpensive wine with cute critters on the label, though both can certainly be found here. It is impossible to make generalizations about a country this physically massive, but most regions are concentrated in the south of the country and experience either warm, dry weather, or more humid, tropical influence. Australia has for several decades been at the forefront of winemaking technology and has widely adopted the use of screwcaps, even for some premium and ultra-premium bottles.

    Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety, typically producing bold, supple reds with sweet, jammy fruit and performing best in the Barossa and Hunter Valleys. Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended with Shiraz, and also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre (often locally referred to as Mataro) are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version, and Semillon is often utilized as its blending partner, or in the Hunter Valley, on its own to make complex, age-worthy whites. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen Muscat is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria. Thanks to the country’s relatively agreeable climate throughout and the openness of its people, experimentation is common and ongoing and there is a vast array of intriguing varieties to be found.

    Chardonnay

    View all wine

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
