5 Star Outstanding Winery from James Halliday, voted Top 10 Dark Horse Wineries in Australian Wine Companion and Anna Hooper was named in Top 12 “Young Guns of Wine” for 2017.
Cape Jaffa winery and vineyard sits atop cave pocketed limestone on the very edge of the South Australian coastline – formed from the remains of coral and long forgotten ocean creatures as the sea made it’s retreat as recently as two million years ago. A unique and isolated post, approximately 30kms North of Robe, and 300km from Adelaide, Cape Jaffa wines are made with heart, earth and salt air.
Their commitment to sustainable agricultural practices through organics and biodynamics (their vineyards are Certified Biodynamic) plus their love of the sea and sense of place is reflected in the wines they make.
To winemakers Derek and Anna Hooper choosing Cape Jaffa just felt right. Red loamy soil, free-draining Limestone, cool Summers and some great local surf breaks tipped the scales as they pioneered the Mount Benson wine region.
This medium bodied shiraz has seen minimal oak. As the winemakers say “The variety we love the most, made in a more drink now style. This wine is literally jumping out of the glass with bright fruit, subtle florals and bold flavours. Only lightly oaked and made to present a soft and smooth texture on the palate. Simple and uncomplicated but quite delectable at the same time. You could drink quite a lot of this quickly if you needed to.”
Excellent follow up to highly rated 2015 vintage which won Gold at Limestone Coast & Adelaide Wine shows.
Review for 2015 vintage from James Halliday “A gold medal at the competitive Limestone Coast Wine Show and a silver at Adelaide in ’16 reflect the balance and drinkability of the wine, exactly as intended by Cape Jaffa (the drinkability, that is, not the unexpected but gratifying wine show success). Also surprising is its excellent colour, fresher and brighter (on close inspection) than Epic Drop. Fantastic value.”
