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.
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. 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.
From the winemaker: It’s fruit driven without being lean. It has had partial barrel fermentation, but the apparent oak is subtle and balanced. Time on lees has given a soft and generous texture to the palate. Made in a style that not only compliments the local seafood, but is also ideally suited to a lazy Summer evening on Long Beach at Robe.
This wine is at its best in its youth however it will evolve into a more tertiary and complex style in the bottle over up to two to three years.”
We love this barrel fermented chardonnay – a smart offering for the price!
