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 toasted cashew.

Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant pale straw with green hues
Attractive aromas of lemon citrus and cashew, with subtleties of honeydew melon and spice
A complex palate of fresh lemon pith and roasted hazelnuts, balanced with subtleties of rice pudding and an underlying textural creaminess. A restrained palate with tight mineral acidity and a chalky structure that
adds freshness and length to the palate.
Attractive drinking now and with careful cellaring will gain further complexity in bottle over the next 5 to 7 years.
Serve chilled. An ideal accompaniment to roast chicken, pan-seared swordfish or vegetarian dishes.
