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
Pale yellow with vibrant green hues
Lifted cool climate varietal aromas of citrus and white peach. Subtle spicy oak and oatmeal notes add complexity to the nose.
Citrus and fresh stone fruits with a hint of cashew nut and rich, textural creamy weight. A full flavoured wine with a chalky acidity that adds a fine spine to the wine giving balance and length to the palate.
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.
