Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant pale straw with green hues. Attractive aromas of lemon citrus and cashew, with subtleties of honeydew melon and spice. A complex palate of fresh lemon pith and roasted hazelnuts, balanced with subtleties of rice pudding and an underlying textural creaminess. A restrained palate with tight mineral acidity and a chalky structure that adds freshness and length to the palate.

An ideal accompaniment to roast chicken, pan-seared swordfish or vegetarian dishes.

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.
