A vast land with almost every type of climate and terroir represented, Australia is one of only a handful of countries to produce a wine in every style. And while Australia has steadily been cultivating its reputation overseas, local winemakers have been blending ‘Old World’ specialties with ‘New World’ techniques to produce flavor-packed wines.
Jack Estate is a family owned and operated winery, passionate and dedicated to growing and producing premium quality wines that showcase the very best of Coonawarra’s prime ‘terra rossa’ soil. As the winery’s motto explains, Jack Estate believes and respects the significance of traditional wine making techniques while creating premium wines for wine lovers to enjoy long into the future.
In 1997 Phil Sexton arrived in the Yarra Valley in search of altitude, aged soils, slopes of exposure, regular rainfall and cool to cold night time temperatures and a gentle breeze off the protecting mountain ranges. Why, because he wanted to grow amazing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit to make wines of purity and finesse.
Yangarra Estate and its wines have steadily gained respect and acclaim within and beyond Australia. Though maintaining a progressive trajectory towards the future, Yangarra continues to take inspiration from its earlier days, grateful for visionaries like Smart and Jackson who endowed custodianship of this prized land and history.
