    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 not just a source of blockbuster Shiraz or inexpensive wine with cute labels, though both can certainly be found here. Australia has a grand winemaking history and some of the oldest vines on the planet, along with a huge range of landscapes and climates; it is impossible to make generalizations about Australian wine. Most regions are concentrated in the south of the country with those inland experiencing warm, dry weather, and those in more coastal areas receiving humid and tropical, or maritime weather patterns. 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 are a vast array of intriguing varieties to be found.

    Chardonnay

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy 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. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
