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: Very good winter rains were recorded across all grape growing regions throughout South East Australia during winter prior to the 2012 growing season. Mild weather with moderate rainfall was observed throughout spring, providing excellent soil moisture profiles, which promoted healthy vine canopy development without the necessity for early season supplementary irrigation. The summer months were generally warm to hot across all regions of South Eastern Australia, where these conditions produced one of the very best vintages in recent years which allowing the Pinot Grigio fruit to ripen to its optimum. Fruit was harvested during the cool of the night at temperatures less than 15 degrees Celsius to minimise phenolic pick up. The Pinot Grigio shows perfect acid balance for the style exhibiting the classic delicate apple, pear and citrus characters. Winemaking: Fruit juice quality was maximised by harvesting at night in cooler temperatures followed by quick and gentle pressing regimes. The juice was chilled, clarified and cool fermented using specially selected yeast strains to enhance the flavours classic to the Pinot Grigio style. After fermentation the best parcels of wine were selected to blend into a Pinot Grigio of the highest quality that is true to style. Anaerobic wine handling prior to and during packaging has ensured that the fresh fruit aromas and flavours of this attractive wine style are retained within the screw capped sealed bottle.
