Overview

This interesting combination combines Shiraz, Grenache and the Mediterranean influence of Tempranillo. Shiraz contributes a ripe plummy richness for this fuller-bodied wine, while the Grenache adds softness and an aromatic, spicy lift. Tempranillo adds layers of rich cherry for a satisfying dry finish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant crimson.

Aroma

The nose shows layers of plum and red cherry aromas, with blueberry, blackcurrant and savoury red fruits.

Palate

Medium bodied, softly textured and with great fruit intensity. The complementary richness of selected ripe Shiraz and the refinement of more elegant Grenache parcels provide an intense fresh raspberry and cherry flavour up front which covers the length of the palate; this feature combines with a more contemporary, savoury edge attributable largely to the intriguing flavour and structure provided by Tempranillo.

Food Matching

Great with grilled lamb cutlets with caramelised pear, hearty chicken casserole or spaghetti Bolognese.

Winemaking Note

Fresh, vibrant, ripe flavours without any overripe characters were sought for the parcels of Shiraz, Grenache and Tempranillo reserved for inclusion in the blend. Parcels were crushed separately to preserve their varietal and regional typicity.

The oak was employed to provide a degree of weight and complexity to the palate rather than imparting an obvious oak character. The individual base wine parcels were reviewed immediately prior to the assembly of the actual final blend. Shiraz provides palate richness and soft sweet tannins while Grenache provides spicy raspberry flavours and a smooth, silky texture to the blend. Tempranillo adds additional layers of savoury flavour complexity and well-rounded tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant called Johann Gramp missed the wine he used to drink in his home land. Instead of changing his habits, he decided to start growing grapes and attempt to make the wine himself. It was a way of adapting to a new country, but still staying true to his character.

What he didn't know was that when he planted the Barossa Valley's first commercial vineyard along the banks of Jacob's Creek, he was also planting the seeds of one of the most popular wine brands in the world that would be named after the waterway.

Today,  Jacob's Creek remains one of the most well known, trusted and enjoyed Australian wines around the world. It delivers fresh, elegant and great tasting wines that show true varietal character.

The philosophy of Jacob's Creek is to offer a range of wines that suit all occasions. As a company, we concentrate on two key things: The first is continuous improvement. Every vintage we strive to improve the quality of our wines by refining our winemaking practices and continually gaining a greater understanding of our vineyards.

The second is that in everything we do, at every step of the winemaking process, from the vineyards all the way through to your glass, we all work with the final destination in mind. We do it for the most important wine critic. You.
