Nothin' but Praise for Philip Laffer and Jacob's Creek


Jancis Robinson, world class wino and connoisseur, has nothing to say but good things about Phillip Laffer & Jacob's Creek... and why wouldn't she? Jancis has the same opportunity I had a couple months ago: being wowed by Jacob's Creek Chief Winemaker, Philip Laffer, as she was taken through varying varietals, vintages and lines of the Jacob's Creek portfolio. She was impressed by the incredible aging potential of all three lines and found the Classic line to be above others in its category. As Jancis noted, the Shiraz and Cabernet also showed that despite the big name of Jacob's Creek, the implemented wine making techniques are just as meticulous as boutique winery collections.

Soon after that, Jancis encountered a blind tasting of 20 Chardonnays ranging in price and region. The Jacob's Creek Chardonnay, both Classic and Reserve, ranked amongst her favorites. As she said, "The distinguishing mark of the Jacob’s Creek Chardonnays is that Laffer has steered their stylistic evolution in parallel with the dramatic change in the style of the average Australian Chardonnay much higher up the ranks."
