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. Shiraz grapes were grown specifically to be made into a sparkling wine, which requires very different grape maturity compared to those meant for still wine. Very light oak maturation results in a fresh well balanced sparkling wine. Awarded a Bronze medal at the International Wine Challenge 2008.

Determining factors for harvest timing are concentrated varietal flavours and fine tannin structure without any over ripe characters. After harvest the selected parcels of Shiraz fruit were gently crushed and de-stemmed, kept on skins for up to 15 days to ensure adequate colour, tannin and flavour extraction. The wines were blended and underwent the secondary fermentation resulting in a fresh well balanced sparkling wine with velvety tannin structure.
Winemaking at our place has been a tradition since 1847 when Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek.
Jacobs Creek Sparkling Shiraz is a multi-vintage wine. A multi-vintage or non-vintage wine allows the skilful blending of younger wines to impart vibrant colour and lifted primary fruit flavours with older wines that add soft textures and complex flavours. Overall this non-vintage Sparkling Shiraz wine is an exceptional blend of Shiraz from different vintages with different but highly compatible personalities.
