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

Ripe pineapple flavors fill this simple, straightforward, juicy white. It's clean and balanced, and not sweet. A great buy at $8.

Jacob's Creek has recently dialed back the use of oak and malolactic fermentation in their chardonnay—hallelujah!—and this allows the fruit to shine through, and it does. It's packed with so many fruit flavors—white peaches, nectarines, honeydews, and cantaloupes—that one might easily assume it's a semi-sweet wine, but it's not; it's entirely dry, with a crisp, zesty, citrus-driven finish.

Has feminine, talc and floral aromas, and sour, citrusy yellow fruit flavors. Mouthfeel is wine and somewhat viscous. it grows leaner on the finish, with citrus peel and fresh green-produce flavors.

Attractive flavors of tropical fruit with the subtle taste of toasty oak. A wine to be enjoyed either on its own or a wide range of dishes.

Pear, peach and apple flavors dominate this medium-bodied wine. Agreeable but not exciting, with a modest finish. Drink now, while it's fresh.
