    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

    View all wine

    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 are a vast array of intriguing varieties to be found.

    Syrah/Shiraz

    View all wine

    Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

    In the Glass

    At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

    Sommelier Secret

    Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
