Jacob's Creek is a popular Australian creek, running through the wine-producing region of the Barossa Valley. But this creek is mostly known for lending its name to the famous Australian wine brand Jacob's Creek. Ever since the first vineyard planted in 1847 by Johann Gramp, Jacob's Creek has been among the most popular and best wine producers in Australia. The vision of this wine enthusiast was to create a variety of great red wines and white wines that perfectly reflect the true character of the land and the grapes. Today, Jacob's Creek grows grapes in three different regions.
Barossa – Barossa is the world's oldest vineyard region, where some of the best tasting wines in the world have been produced, especially Riesling and Shiraz. Dry, warm and with deeper soils, the Barossa Valley is perfectly suited for growing intense full-bodied Shiraz, while Eden Valley (a part of Barossa) is known for a cooler climate with shallow rocks, where world-class Rieslings are produced.
Adelaide Hills – The Adelaide Hills region is near east Adelaide. As one of the coolest regions in Australia, the Adelaide Hills offer many different soil types, which results in a huge diversity of altitude, soils and of course, wines. The cool climate of Adelaide Hills is perfect for producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.
Coonawarra – The world's finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines are produced in Coonawarra, one of the most popular wine regions of Australia. Located far south east of South Australia, with a temperate climate and cooling breezes, Coonawarra stretches out in well arranged rows along the main road.
With experience of over 150 years, Jacob's Creek offers a unique, special and extensive selection of wines. Producing high-quality Australian-style wines has always been the wine-making philosophy of the wine producer. Great tasting, fresh, elegant and for everyday consumption, Jacob's Creek wines are popular all over the world and have been awarded on international wine contents.
Today, Jacob's Creek is among the top wine producers not only in Australia, but in the world, creating premium wines with a true character and a variety of styles. Each bottle of Jacob's Creek wine is a benchmark of high quality. Having three different wine producing regions, Jacob's Creek is able to produce all wine types: red, white, rose and sparkling wines.
Red Wines – Jacob's Creek has built its reputation on its great red wines. Elegant, vibrant, well textured and balanced, Jacob's Creek offers a wide selection of world-class red wines. The Classic Barossa Shiraz, the Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir and the Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon are three must-try reds by Jacob's Creek.
White Wines – Just like Jacob's Creek great red wines, the white wines by Australia's largest wine producer are magnificent in all aspects. Jacob's Creek whites are available in different varieties and different tastes. One of the best ones is the Classic Chardonnay. A fresh and soft tasting wine with creamy peaches, fresh melon and a balanced oak finish, this white wine is ideal with white fish or creamy chicken pasta. Some other exceptional Jacob's Creek white wines are: Classic Sauvignon Blanc, Classic Riesling and Classic Pinot Grigio.
Sparkling Wines – The Australia's most popular wine producer offers about a dozen of excellent sparkling wines. Although each is unique and excellent, the Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir is the top choice. It has a rich, but structured and refreshing taste with citrus fruit flavours, boosted with creamy nutty.
Rose Wines – The Jacob's Creek Shiraz Rose is really something special, with an exquisite palate of strawberries and raspberries and a well-balanced fruit sweetness. With an easily recognizable pink-red colour, the Shiraz Rose is a sophisticated wine, perfect for the summer with a portion of Asian salad.
