Behind one of Australia’s most popular wine brands – Jacob’s Creek, there is a rich and vibrant history. Wine pioneer Johann Gramp planted his first vineyard in 1847 to begin a winemaking journey that has become legendary over the years. Today, the company exports its superb wines to more than 60 countries. It sources only the best grapes for producing these wines, from its lush vineyards in Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra.
The dazzling Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Rosé is an award winning blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. The fruit was picked with minimum skin contact in the cool of the night, and delivered for gentle pressing at the winery. The resulting wine reveals an elegant light pink colour accompanied by a fine mousse. The attractive bouquet exudes fresh aromas of strawberries and redcurrants from the Pinot Noir counterpart, with subtle citrus characters from Chardonnay. The lush palate is rife with flavours of red berries and lemon citrus, which combine with creamy yeast autolysis to culminate in a soft and round finish. This refreshing wine tastes lovely when served chilled with Chinese soy braised abalone, tapas, or finger food.
