For this wine we reserved selected parcels of grapes grown in the Adelaide Hills region in South Australia. The cool climate of the Adelaide Hills ripens the fruit, developing a crisp acidity.
Jacob’s Creek Reserve Chardonnay exhibits regional characteristics of white peach, nectarine and lemon zest with hints of tasted cashew.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant pale yellow with touch of green.
A genuine cool climate style. Restrained lemon blossom aromas and tropical notes are definitely merged with classy French oak which adds subtle toasty, nutty characters.
Beautifully balanced with a taut lemony acid structure. The palate has excellent length, weight and texture.
Attractive drinking now, and with careful cellaring will gain further complexity in bottle over the next 3 to 5 years.
Serve chilled. An ideal accompaniment to roast chicken, pan-seared swordfish or vegetarian dishes.
