About The Wine

The Jack's Shiraz is the perfect entry point into the classic Barossa wines of Laughing Jack and Shawn Kalleske.

Assembled from selected premium vineyards across the region, this is the softest, most approachable Shiraz in their range. It's built to offer immediate enjoyment as well as to have the ability to age for up to a decade.

It's a lush, red-fruited, heart-warming Shiraz that is Barossa Valley to its core.

About Laughing Jack

The Laughing Jack wines are a family affair that began in the Barossa Valley in 1999.

The Kalleske family are all involved here: parents Ian & Carol Kalleske alongside sons Nathan, Damon and Shawn who is the winemaker/grapegrower and general Jack of all trades in the winery.

They have multiple vineyard across the region with their winery located in Marananga. These are honest, robust Barossa wines that show all the generosity and flavour that the region is famous for.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sourced from the family’s Greenock, Marananga & Moppa Hill vineyards.

The grapes were de-stemmed and whole berries transferred into open top fermenters. 70% was made in small 3 tonne open tops with hand plunging twice times per day. 30% made in larger fermenters 5 & 8 tonne, with 2 x pump overs per day. Both receiving an occasional rack and return to chillers for cooling only. After fermentation the wine was then drained to oak barrels and skins were hand dug out of the fermenters into the basket press.

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Deep red colour with a good tint of purple and a strong bouquet of smoky dark chocolate, and char oak is a part of it. A rich palate, full-bodied and generous, with round, supple tannins and very agreeable mouth-feel. The tannins help extend the long finish. This would age well, too." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

The Wine Front

"Bold wine. Black fruit, mocha and mint, spice and tar. It’s full-bodied, chewy and dense, a lot of black fruit and dark chocolate, quite dry and slightly bitter. some orange rind and tang to acidity, and a dry finish of solid length. Solid, quite salty, but no shortage of flavour." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
