Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep ruby red with crimson edges.

Aroma

A classic Coonawarra nose at the riper end of the spectrum, with concentrated dark berry fruits, blackberry leaf and chocolate, complemented by spicy, toasty oak.

Palate

Elegant yet powerful, with refined intense berry fruit flavours and integrated cedary oak, supported by a core of firm yet supple tannins, with a long, savoury finish.

Cellaring Potential

Carefully cellaring this wine for the next 5-10 years will enable further development and integration of the ripe and intense fruit flavours it has come to be known for.

Food Matching

Recommended with pan-cooked eye fillet of beef, served with beef jus and Boulangere potatoes. The simplicity of the beef with the crispy dish of thinly sliced baked potatoes showcases the ripe intensity of this 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.
