Jacob's Creek Reserve Chardonnay 2010
Chardonnay from South Australia, Australia
Pale yellow with vibrant green hues. Lifted cool climate varietal aromas of citrus and white peach. Subtle spicy oak and oatmeal notes add complexity to the nose. Citrus and fresh stone fruits with a hint of cashew nut and rich, textural creamy weight. A full flavoured wine with a chalky acidity that adds a fine spine to the wine giving balance and length to the palate.
Wine Spectator - "Polished, expressive and appealing for its pear, honey and delicate spice flavors, this is deftly balanced and elegant right through the finish. Drink now through 2017. Best Value"
Jacob's Creek Winery
With over 150 years of making wine in the Barossa Valley, Jacob's Creek's winemaking philosophy is to make high quality wines in a contemporary Australian style, which are fresh, elegant, great tasting and show true varietal character. From its beginnings in 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant named Johann Gramp planted the Barossa Valley's first commercial vineyard on the banks of Jacob's Creek. His first vineyard was in a small ironstone winery and visitors can still walk the historic vineyard, inspect the original cellar and feel a true sense of place for Jacob's Creek. Today, Jacob's Creek is one of the leading forces of Australian wine, creating wines with true character with a variety of different offerings from its portfolio. View all Jacob's Creek Wines
About South AustraliaView a map of South Australia wineries McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world. White wines gain their reputation from the distinctive Rieslings of Clare Valley.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
