cracka review

If you were going to look for a region beyond the Clare to blend with your own special parcels of Chardonnay fruit then you could do no worse than the Adelaide Hills. That’s what Taylors have done with the Jaraman range, forging the best of two terroirs to complete the blend. This is bang on the money with white peach and nectarine a core of lemon and a hint of spice. It’s rich and round, elegant and poised with white peach and citrus while barrel work has lent texture and complexity. It finishes with good natural acid and persistent length.

expert reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2012 Vintage) says
In the company house style, youthful vibrant apple pear like chardonnay fruit with subtle cinnamon oak. The generous palate has fruit purity and big deep middle flavours of pear and finishes with subtle pie crust like oak.

Bright straw-green; the Adelaide Hills component gives the wine definition and verve it could never get from the Clare Valley; has attractive grapefruit nuances, and the oak is balanced.

winemaker's notes

An unusual fusion of Clare Valley & Adelaide Hills resulting in an intensely flavoured, complex yet elegant wine with distinct citrus, white peach & nectarine characters along with a subtle flinty note.

Colour: On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a youthful green hue

Bouquet: The wine has intense lifted aromas of melon and white peach with underlying subtle savoury notes from the French oak

Palate: The palate delivers well-balanced and evenly distributed fruit flavours of classic melon and peach along with underlying creamy notes from the lees stirring. Texturally, the wine has a retrained, tight structure overall and yet still displays a measure of subtle creaminess to the mid palate and rewards with well integrated oak. The Clare Valley parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness whilst the Adelaide Hills component contributes the restraint and elegance that are typical of this region. Overall, the wine has a great palate line with length which lingers long after the wine is consumed

Cellaring notes: Will cellar well under ideal conditions for the next 5 to 8 years

Alc/vol: 14.5%
