Stress Free Christmas Food & Wine Pairing

Back to NEWS

This year your Christmas table won’t be quite complete without this mix of delicious food wines.  With our new releases and a Jack’s GSM for good measure you’ll have a large array of dishes (and palates) covered!  Each of these wines generously over-deliver with quality for the price and don’t forget they’re vegan friendly too so there really is something for everyone.

Laughing Jack has you covered this Christmas Day!

Childhood memories have me fondly reminiscing about Christmas Day at Nanna’s house when you knew arriving midmorning that she had been preparing lunch for hours before our arrival.  A true Christmas feast was on its way and it would never disappoint!  To keep Dad happy we would always start with a prawn cocktail followed by a main course of perfectly cooked roast meats of turkey, pork, lamb and chicken.  Plus roast spuds, carrots, pumpkin, parsnips galore and a big bowl of mint peas and creamy beans.  Don’t forget the salads too German cucumber and potato salads even a big plate of sliced ham.  You knew you had to leave room for the traditional Christmas pudding and hot brandy sauce that was still to come because it was just the best!  Those were the days! x

Whatever Christmas looks like to you we have four delicious affordable wines that have got you covered.  Jack’s Semillon, GSM and Shiraz teamed with our Laughing Jack Rosé have truly got it all!  Such a versatile bunch of wines that from seafood and salad Semillon and Rosé will see you through to roast turkey, pork or lamb GSM and Shiraz are your crew. Mix it up and serve a bottle of each and let your guests decide – too easy – job done!

For some alternative food pairing options check out what Kieron Gardiner owner of local restaurant Char Barossa has to say below about our new releases.

2021 Jack’s Semillon:  Would go well with almost any seafood or white meat, largely contributed to the noticeable restraint of acidity which lets the gentle undertones of stone fruit look their best.  SA king prawns on an avocado Tian (smashed avo, salt, pepper, lemon juice) finished with a light lemon and Semillon beurre Blanc (lemon and white wine butter sauce.)  Or a really fresh handmade gnocchi, asparagus, peas, broad beans, olive crumb, shaved parmesan

2021 Rosé:  The true meaning of versatile!  Mediterranean style salad of baby beetroot, capsicum, Black olives, fetta, pine nuts & shaved pecorino cheese with a drizzle of vincotto.

2019 Jack’s Shiraz:  This is punching above its weight in the Laughing Jack portfolio. Really balanced wine and can match to anything from pork to the mighty rib eye steak.  House smoked duck with drunken currants, freekeh salad, labneh & a pomegranate molasses.

Wine is heat sensitive. During the warmer months we reserve the right to hold orders in instances of extreme heat, until there is a clear path of non-extreme temperatures between us and you. All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
