In 1847, a young Bavarian immigrant called Johann Gramp missed the wine he used to drink in his home land. Instead of changing his habits, he decided to start growing grapes and attempt to make the wine himself. It was a way of adapting to a new country, but still staying true to his character. What he didn’t know was that when he planted the Barossa Valley’s first commercial vineyard along the banks of Jacob’s Creek, he was also planting the seeds of one of the most popular wine brands in the world that would be named after the waterway.  Today,  Jacob's Creek remains one of the most well known, trusted and enjoyed Australian wines around the world. It delivers fresh, elegant and great tasting wines that show true varietal character.  The philosophy of Jacob's Creek is to offer a range of wines that suit all occasions.  As a company, we concentrate on two key things: The first is continuous improvement. Every vintage we strive to improve the quality of our wines by refining our winemaking practices and continually gaining a greater understanding of our vineyards. The second is that in everything we do, at every step of the winemaking process, from the vineyards all the way through to your glass, we all work with the final destination in mind. We do it for the most important wine critic. You. Read less

Vintage Conditions: Jacob?s Creek Blanc de Blancs is a non vintage Chardonnay sparkling wine. Freshness of fruit flavour and yeast complexity is achieved by the inclusion of more than one vintage during assemblage. Cross blending of vintages also allows the winemaker to accomplish a consistency of quality and style. The Chardonnay grapes are harvested early in vintage when they have fresh varietal flavours and high natural acidity. The retention of natural acidity is important to the style of this wine, giving the palate a crisp and vibrant finish. Winemaking: Our Blanc de Blancs is produced using Chardonnay fruit only, sourced from selected viticultural regions of South East Australia. The grapes were harvested in the cool of night to reduce the chance of phenolic pickup during transport. Gentle pressing yields juices of elegance, finesse and soft flavour, essential for the making of quality sparkling wine. These juice batches were then fermented separately using a cultured sparkling yeast strain to produce clean, delicate base wines. After a full malolactic fermentation, which adds palate richness and creamy complexity, the base wines undergo secondary fermentation. The yeast contact during this process adds a creamy complexity to the mid palate. The individual batches were then assessed by winemakers and blended in proportions that created a wine of delicate balance with fresh varietal grape flavour
