Domaine Rolet L'etoile Chardonnay 2017

$50.00

Fragrant Jasmine, Vanilla, light oak, Oxidative

Pairs well with fish, both white and washed rind Cheeses. It’s quite a versitile wine that would also pair with sweet and Savoury spreads, keeping it to the more salty end to pair with the sweetness of the wine. With food pairing, white and fuller bodied fish like Salmon, and Tuna would go well, as well as some spicier Mexican Dishes

The Jura wine Region sits on the French Border with Switzerland and is basically that most idillic French Village that we’d all likely retire to if we didn’t watch Escape to the Chateau.

Known for producing Savagnin, Jura’s wines are oxidative, Fresh, and quite unique as French stylings go. Their whites are more vibrant, and their reds are generally lighter, Pinot Noir, Poulsard, Trousseau for example.

Jura shares a similar climate to the Yarra Valley, but with vastly different limestone soils (as opposed to our local Loams) yielding a more Mineral focused wine.

There are 6 Different Appelations within Jura,

Cotes Du Jura
Arbois (Don’t make the same mistake I make, its Arr Bwaah)
Cremant Du Jura: For Sparkling
L’Etoile
Macvin du Jura: Mostly for late harvest sweet wine.

In addition to Wine, Jura is a popular Skiing destination.
