Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Mid straw green.

Aroma

Attractive white floral nose with scented lemons and hints of spicy apricot.

Palate

A very soft and fresh palate showing lively lemon citrus, with subtle grassy flavours and apricot spice. The wine has a textural finish that adds weight and length.

Food Matching

Serve chilled. Great with chicken Caesar salad or grilled baby squid stuffed with couscous.

Winemaking Note

The wine is a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier with each varietal playing an integral part in the character of the finished wine. Early in the season winemakers and viticulturists worked together to identify the vineyards which best captured the fruit profile that they were hoping to achieve in the finished wine.

There was no oak maturation or malo-lactic fermentation undertaken with this wine, so it is a true expression of the three varieties. Long cool fermentations allowed the wines to maintain their fresh fruit profile, whilst maximising the lifted aromas and intense flavours.

Semillon delivers crisp citrus flavours and combined with the lively tropical fruit of Sauvignon Blanc and the richness of Viognier, the result is an attractive and refreshing blend that complements a wide range of foods.

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.
