Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Pale to medium straw with vibrant green hues.

Bouquet: Rich citrus melon fruit notes complemented by nutty, subtle vanillin oak.

Palate: Elegant citrus melon fruit flavours are complemented by soft, creamy yeast autolysis and delicate vanillin oak nuances. This wine has excellent structure with fresh acidity and good persistence of flavour.

About Jacob's Creek:

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.
