Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Vibrant pale Green

Bouquet: Fresh floral lime, complemented by an appealing citrus blossom signature.

Palate: Attractive lime's and floral fruit flavours with hint of spice fill the mouth. A clean and taut mineral acidity provides a superb structural balance to the classic Riesling flavours on the finish of the wine.

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.
