Product information

Soft, approachable, with fruit flavours of citrus, melon and ripe fig. Lively acidity gives a balanced, refreshing finish.

Vibrant, fresh Semillon exhibiting lemon citrus aromas was blended with a softer, richer Chardonnay showing lifted peach and melon, delivering a flavoursome, balanced wine.

"In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant named Johann Gramp planted the Barossa Valley's first commercial Vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek. From the vine to the bottle, the mission for Jacob's Creek is simply to improve the quality of each vintage Fruit was harvested from a variety of regions within South Eastern Australia that have traditionally provided the correct balance of flavour for the blend. The juice of selected parcels of Semillon and Chardonnay was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeast strains optimising and retaining the freshness and purity of the varietal fruit character captured in the vineyard.

Grape Variety

Sémillon, Chardonnay

Vinification Details

After night-time harvesting the fruit was quickly transported to the winery and immediately processing using gentle pressing regimes to minimise skin contact. The resulting fresh, soft juice was then clarified and fermented cold using yeast strains selected to enhance the Semillon and Chardonnay varietal fruit flavours. The best batches of wine were then allocated by the winemaker to the final blend to produce a wine of the utmost quality for the given vintage.

History

Winemaking at our place has been a tradition since 1847 when Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek.

Regional Information

Temperatures during summer were cool to mild but extensive rainfall became challenging for grape growers. The Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were harvested at ripeness levels slightly lower than in typical years to ensure disease free fruit. Fruit flavour and varietal characters were excellent despite earlier than normal harvesting.
