Expert Reviews

Pale magenta; fragrant red fruit aromas, then an almost slippery palate; while dry, red fruits rise on the back-palate and finish. A complete rose with character and attitude. Gold medal Sydney Wine Show '10. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australain Wine Companion Edition 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant fuchsia pink.

Aroma

Attractive raspberry and red cherry aromas with subtle notes of blackcurrant and confectionary spice.

Palate

The palate displays intense fresh raspberry and cherry flavours up front with a fleshy mid palate. A textural savouriness as a result of the Sangiovese component balances out the fruit and provides structure and length.

Food Matching

Serve chilled. Great with roast pork loin with rosemary and salt-roasted potatoes served with pan juices.

Winemaking Note

The wine is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, and Sangiovese 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.

Fruit was cool night harvested and delivered to the winery where it was crushed and pressed off skins immediately. Selected parcels of fruit were given extended skin contact time to extract more depth of colour, however without the extraction of phenolics and harsh tannins. After clarification parcels of juice were cool fermented with a selected yeast strain at 12 – 15°C to enhance their natural varietal fruit characters. Following fermentation the wines were assessed by our winemaking team with only the most appropriate parcels selected in the final blend. Post blending, the wine was stabilised, clarified and bottled under anaerobic conditions in order to capture the fresh varietal aromas and flavours in the bottle.

The Jacob's Creek Three Vines Shiraz Grenache Sangiovese captures the varietal characteristics of each component resulting in a very lively and fresh style with complex varietal characters making it an attractive food friendly wine.

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.
