External Reviews for Jacob's Creek Sparkling Rose
Vintage Conditions: Jacob?s Creek Sparkling Rosé is a non-vintage sparkling wine. Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from a variety of Australia?s grape growing regions, it brings together a combination of warm and cool climate characters. Being a non-vintage sparkling, complexity and consistency of style is achieved by including both current and prior vintages. Typically, the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir 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: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are selected from both cooler and warmer grape growing regions. The cooler premium districts give acid structure and length, whereas the warmer regions ensure richness and depth of varietal fruit flavour. The grapes are harvested in the cool of night with minimal skin contact. Gentle pressing in the winery produces juices of elegance, finesse and soft flavour, essential for the making of quality sparkling wine. These juices are then fermented separately using a cultured sparkling yeast strain to produce clean delicate base wines. Following full malolactic fermentation, which adds palate richness and creamy complexity, the base wines undergo secondary fermentation. A degree of natural pink colour is also preserved in the finished wine to produce this sparkling Rosé style.
