Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant green color. Attractive flowery citrus lime aroma, clean and fresh with good Riesling varietal definition. Enticing citrus flavors on the palate with great structure and length. The fruit is balanced with soft minerally acid that finishes crisp and dry.

The Jacob's Creek Reserve Riesling selects the best out of South Australia's classic Riesling vineyard. A quality premium Riesling, this wine is attractive now, but will certainly reward extended cellaring uder temperature controlled conditions.

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.
