Jacob's Creek Chardonnay Barossa Valley 2010
External Reviews for Jacob's Creek Chardonnay Barossa Valley
Crisp and lively, with modest but pretty peach and floral flavors, finishing dry. Drink now.
Light and refreshing, appealing for its bright nectarine, lemon and apricot flavors. Drink now.
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.
